She had a legendary run earning All-Carolinas Conference first team honors in each of her 4 years at St. Andrews. To go along with her All-Conference placements, she was amongst the top goal-scorers every year as well. Haley scored several hat-tricks in her career (3 goals in one game) and is well remembered by her teammates as a true competitor. Her former coach Chad Esposito described her as the leader of the team on and off the field.
