Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
I enjoy the rush you get when you score a goal. Also it is fun to look back at each game and think about what you can do better for the next game. I had great times going to field hockey camp too.
What is your most memorable athletic moment?
Definitely beating Little Falls with seven seconds left in my junior year.
Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
My Coach Jo Jo Levi inspired me. She has been my coach for all of the years I played and she taught me so much. I really look up to her.
What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
When we play far away night games and get home late it would be hard to find time to study and was challenging especially when a test was scheduled the next day. I balanced this by crunching in study time here and there when opportunities came about.
What are your plans after graduating from high school?
I plan to attend a four-year school to major in Business.
