WHAT MEMORIES DO YOU TAKE AWAY WITH YOU AS YOU LEAVE HIGH SCHOOL?
“We have this tradition where we go to Fredericksburg for a soccer tournament and we spend the day there. We walk the main street and shop, go to the Airport Diner, east some really good breakfast. We have a lot of traditions that we do throughout practice. It’s more of a family than a team. It’s been a really great past four years with them.”
WHAT WAS IT LIKE GOING THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL DURING THE PANDEMIC?
“It was definitely different. My junior year we had to wear masks while playing and that wasn’t fun but if it kept us on the field, it kept us on the field. We did what we had to do; we were fortunate enough to play all four years.”
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUR FELLOW STUDENTS?
“Get a planner, I love using a planner. I write everything down, it helps with time management and everything you have for the week.”
