Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
I enjoy working in the team atmosphere. We may be a team but we act like a big family!
What is your most memorable athletic moment?
My most memorable moment would have to be my sectional softball game in Tully in 10th grade. It was my first ever out of the park home run. It was one of the best feelings in the world.
Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
My brother even though he doesn’t play anymore. He is the one that got me interested in sports way back in second grade.
What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
Playing three sports and balancing school is tough, but school comes first. Having late night practices or games means late nights or early mornings to get the work done.
What are your plans after graduating from high school?
I will be attending HCCC for Sports and Recreation Management, then transferring to either Cortland or Cazenovia to finish my last two years.
