Cross country and track and field

1. What TV game show would you be good at?

“Survivor.” I’ve watched all of them, and it’s been running 10 years, so I know how the game works. I’m small and people might underestimate me, and I’m good with people.

2. Which of your teammates do you really admire?

Laura Biederwolf. She’s a really strong person. She knows who she is, and that’s one of the best things you can do as a person and one of most kind-hearted people I know.

3. What’s your favorite personal sports memory over the last year?

I was running a race in cross country and coach [Ken Greenfield] had me try something different with strategy and I heard him yelling at me, “Top 15 get a medal,” and I thought to myself “I really want a medal” and I got ninth.

4. What is a good training motto?

My favorite is “You always get out what you put in.” That goes for anything, not just sports.

5. What superpower do you wish you had?

Flying.

My best friend Nick Whiting in soccer. He’s a good leader on and off the field, and he always pushes everyone to get better.

The harder you push yourself in practice, the easier it will be in a game.
