Favorite Sport (and why): "My favorite sport is basketball, though I wouldn’t say it is my favorite by far as softball is a close second. I love the fast pace of the game as well as the camaraderie that comes with playing."

Best Advice from a High School Coach: "The best piece of advice that I have received from a High School coach comes from Jay Johnson, one of my softball coaches. He always tells me to 'just pitch and rely on my teammates behind me'. His words made me feel more confident and relaxed as I knew I had my teammates behind me for support."
