Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
I like that us Dolgeville girls have always worked as a team and been like a family. Also that we have always went out on the field and never gave up.
What is your most memorable athletic moment?
Our Kicks for Kath game (when Mrs. Winkler had breast cancer).
Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
Kaylie Darling has always inspired me when watching her in the goal. Also she has been there to be my partner for every run and every drill. And (she is) always the one to say. “Good job, Lynn. Keep up the good work,” or to cheer me on so I could do better.
What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
Having my senior year be my best year of high school and doing everything I can to make it successful.
What are your plans after graduating from high school?
Going to college for nursing and, in between, working in a salon.
