    Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
    I love the intensity of basketball and the fast pace of the game. I’m all about staying active and having fun. I also enjoy hanging out with my team and creating memories that I’ll have forever.
    What is your most memorable athletic moment?
    My most memorable moment was becoming league champions when I was a sophomore and making it to the Class C-1 (sectional) finals.
    Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why
    Missy Lasowski is my biggest inspiration in sports. I played AAU on Missy’s team all through high school and always have looked up to her. She is a huge inspiration to me because she truly was a fighter and a competitor. Missy never let anyone tell her she couldn’t do something and for that I greatly admire her. She will be in my heart forever.
    What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
    The greatest challenge I find in balancing academics and sports is finding time for everything. At times, balancing school work with sports can get hectic, but participating in sports keeps me in a routine. Also, completing assignments early and knowing what needs to be done that week in school helps ensure that everything is accomplished.
    What are your plans after graduating from high school?
    I plan to attend college and become a physical therapist.
