Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
The thing I like the most is the intensity and the pace. It’s very fast. It’s physical and competitive from a personal standpoint. However, in the end it’s about the team working hard together. All the parts coming together as one to score and defend.
What is your most memorable athletic moment?
Last year when we won our sectional game and were awarded the Section Championship patches.
Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why
I always looked up to my older sister Maria Lorenzoni. Maria never quit or went half speed. She was a total team player first. She was always encouraging me even when I was a freshman.
What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
Finding the time for both between practices, games and school work.
What are your plans after graduating from high school?
Getting a four-year degree. I realize now how important an education is going to be. I also want to keep active in field hockey in some way.
