Quick Q&A: Sammie Delzotto, Eagan basketball

  • January 4, 2013 - 5:17 PM
Senior guard Sammie Delzotto has helped the Wildcats girls' basketball team win eight of its first 10 games. She is averaging more than 11 points per game. Here is a closer look at Delzotto:

The best movie I've seen in the past year is ... "Pitch Perfect." It is my favorite movie of all time.

Three songs I never skip on my iPod ... "Titanium" by David Guetta; "Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus; "Right by My Side" by Nicki Minaj.

What are your three favorite apps? Twitter, Instagram, Wanelo.

Who do you like to follow the most on Twitter, and why? I love following @CuteEmergency because they tweet pictures of little cute animals, and they always make me smile when I see them!

Three words or phrases my friends or teammates might use to describe me? Energetic, leader, funny.

At my first varsity practice, I felt ... nervous because I was the youngest. But that didn't last for long because my team made me feel welcome from the start.

What is your most memorable moment as a high school athlete so far? Beating Bloomington Kennedy 73-72 my junior year on a buzzer-beater shot by one of my teammates. They were one of the top teams in the state, so it was one of the most exciting games I have ever been a part of.

How do you balance school and sports during the year? I try and focus really well in the classroom, so that when I do have homework I understand it so that way I can get it done much faster.

In 10 years, I hope I'm ... a physical therapist for a professional sports team.
