Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
I enjoy playing field hockey and playing and succeeding as a team.
What is your most memorable athletic moment?
In my junior year, on our way to the championship game in the Sauquoit field hockey tournament my coach told me I had to play goalie. I was pretty excited that we won with a shutout. This was exciting because I had never played goalie in a varsity game before.
Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
My sister Olivia. My freshman year playing with her when she was a senior. She would always make sure I was doing everything correctly and supported me through everything.
What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
The biggest challenge with balancing academics and sports would be coming home late from either a practice or game and having to stay up to finish homework.
What are your plans after graduating from high school?
I plan to attend college and major in business.
