Q: What do you think the keys will be to the team's success this year?
A: I think it's going to be hardwork, consistency and being able to have fun. Our team works so well when we're relaxed and having fun and, if we can bring that to every game, then we can do a lot of great things this year.
Q: Who, whether it be a coach or family member, has most influenced your lacrosse career and how?
A: Probably my sister Kerry. I don't think I'd even be playing if it wasn't for her. I've always played with her, and she's always pushed me to be better.
Q: I understand that you were involved with THON, what was that experience like?
A: THON was amazing. I can't put into words really how much it means to everyone who's involved. But to see how much these kids go through everyday and how positive and upbeat they are, really puts into perspective a lot of the problems I tend to stress over on a daily basis.
Q: You are a senior, looking back at the past three years, what has been your favorite Penn State lacrosse memory?
A: Either beating Virginia my freshman year, UNC last season or making it to the NCAA's during my freshman season. All three of those moments are what every college athlete wants, those moments where it all comes together and you feel on top of the world. Winning the big games is such an adrenaline rush.
Q: What do you love about playing lacrosse at Penn State?
A: The girls on the team and the coaches. They make every aspect of lacrosse so much fun. Whether its sending YouTube videos out to each other or having dance offs in the locker room, they manage to make everything fun.
Q: What's your favorite place on campus and why?
A: Wow, I don't know about on Campus....off-campus I love Faccia Luna; they have the best Italian food in State College. On campus, probably the Creamery because they have the best honey flavored cream cheese and the best coffee.
