How did you prep for season?

I did summer workouts every Monday through Thursday at school unless I was out of town and then I would also stay after for open gyms and practice with my teammates.

What advice do you have for underclassman?

Always give your best effort day in and day out, respect your coaches and appreciate the time you have cause it ends before you know it.

How was the coach that most inspired you or had the biggest impact on your life?

My softball coach, coach Shepard. She has always had my back and supported me in softball but also outside of softball, this enabled me to be a better athlete and teammate throughout my high school career. I will forever be grateful for the impact she had on my life on and off the court.

If you could have any superpower what would it be and why?

If I could have one superpower, I would have teleportation. I love to travel so it would be amazing if I could just up and leave. I think it would be it way more fun and less expensive and I would able to travel to different places that I couldn’t do on a normal basis.

What is your favorite show or movie that you have been watching?

I have been watching the Harry Potter movies on repeat. They are some of my favorite movies, as well as books so during this time at home I have watched several times.
