Q.  How long have you been playing field hockey, and what made you start playing?

A. Nine years, since the 7th grade. I started playing street hockey when I was about 10. I wanted to play a sport that I was really passionate about. I found that with field hockey.

Q. You are the starting goalie for the team this season. How’s it going so far?

A.  It’s going really, really well. We’ve been struggling in the NEWMAC, but we’ve had some great  non-conference wins. We have more than enough season left to get it back. Our team chemistry is looking really good also. I think this will be a good season.

Q. Are there any teams you’re excited to play this season?

A. The Babson game will for sure be exciting for us.

Q. What’s your motivation on the field?
