What is the one thing that you have to do to get ready for a game?
"I have to listen to music and be around my friends. The girls in my class especially. We help each other get that motivation to beat a team. We're a huge underdog this year, so we just want to go in there and prove people wrong."

When you get time off, how do prefer to spend it?
"I love the outdoors and being outside. That is a big reason why I chose to come here. I just got a new puppy, so that's kind of been my extra curricular activity lately. It's a little boy Beagle named Brady. He's a cutie."

What other sports have you done in the past and do you enjoy?
"I used to play basketball and softball and I had to make a decision once I got to high school between softball and soccer. I wasn't that good basketball ever, so I just kind of gave that one up. I enjoy volleyball as well, but I never played competitively."

What is your favorite color?
"My favorite color is blue because I like the ocean and water, so that's probably the reason I like blue. Blue is just pretty. I like baby blue the most."

What is your favorite food?
"I'm a huge eater. I love food. I like Chinese food, Mexican food, but I guess Chinese food would probably be my favorite. Top three would Chinese, Mexican and then Italian. It just depends; I like sushi too."

Being from Colorado, do you spend more time down there or up here in the off-season?
"It just depends. Last year in the spring and fall I had a pretty tough schedule for school so I spent a lot of time here, but I miss my family and so I try to go home as much as possible. In the spring I try and go home at least once a month so that I can see my family."

What kind of music do you like?
"Absolutely not polka. I like rap and R&B, definitely country and I'm just starting to get into a little bit of rock. I don't know, I just like music; something that has a beat. I even like techno. A lot of people hate it, but I like it. I just like a little bit of everything."
