On winning the Athena Award: It’s a really big deal. There are a lot of other great girls at this school that could have won. At the school, there are picture of all the Athena Award winners. When I was a freshman, I thought it was really cool. I always looked up to them.
What makes you a good captain? I think I ‘m just a good friend for everyone on the team. I’m normally a positive person and one who helps a lot.
What position do you play in lacrosse? I’m a forward. I’m a forward in all sports.
What do you like about lacrosse? It’s really new to me. I learn something new every week and I’ve made a lot of new friends.
