Tell me about your family:
My family’s super close. I have one younger brother, Thomas (12), and my parents, Bob and Bobbie Jo. And I can’t forget my pups, Tucker and Millie!
Do you come from a sports family:
Yes. I’ve grown up both playing and watching all three sports I’m in. My dad was a State Champ for basketball, and my younger brother plays too, so I’d say the sport definitely runs in the family. My dad and I are super competitive as well, which can sometimes get a little crazy.
Is there a sport you wish you had played:
I’ve always wanted to play hockey, but I’m not sure if I’d be coordinated enough to do so. I think throwing in track would be fun too.
Do you plan to participate in any sports in college?
Not at the collegiate level, but most likely intramurals.
Reflect on your high school sports moments:
I’d have to say my favorite moment was becoming Marawood Conference Champs for the first time ever in my junior season of softball.
What is something about you that most people wouldn’t know:
I hate ketchup. Like absolutely despise it. I also play the ukulele… kind of.
