    Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
    Playing under the lights against your biggest rival, with the bleachers full of fans is the best feeling in the world. I also love how close I become with my team.
    What is your most memorable athletic moment?
    My most memorable athletic moment was when I was a sophomore  on varsity and we won one of the biggest games within the last few minutes, home against Mount Markham, because we played together as a team.
    Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
    Mrs. (Monica) Tooley and Ms. (Jocelyn) Dunn both equally inspire me the most in sports. They are excellent coaches and field hockey players. They’re always people I look up to.
    What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
    The greatest challenge I have balancing academics and sports is just finding enough time in the day to practice and do school work before I fall asleep. Keeping busy does keep me more organized though.
    What are your plans after graduating from high school?
    I plan to attend college and major in occupational therapy. I also hope to study abroad.
