What was the highlight of your season? Definitely scoring the game-winning goal in double OT in our championship game.

Who was the unsung hero of your team? Jillian Lachapelle. She controls the entire field in every game and is one of the best defenders I have ever seen.

What was the biggest surprise of the season? The way all of the freshmen really stepped up the entire season. They all really made an effort to improve their skills to play at the high school level and really meshed with the rest of the team.

Do you have any sports superstitions? If so, what are they? I always wear one of our team ribbons in my hair, but that’s really the only one.

What’s your favorite pre-game meal? I usually eat light before a game so I’ll usually have granola bar.

If someone was going to make a movie of your season, who would play your coach? Who would play you? My coach would be played by Danny DeVito because he is hilarious. I would be played by Jennifer Lawrence since I don’t know any other female actors.

If you could go to any sporting event, what would it be? My first choice would obviously be a field hockey game but a close second is a hockey game.

If you weren’t playing your sport in the fall, what would you be doing? I would be dancing full time.

What’s your favorite app? Snapchat or Twitter.

What’s your most-played song right now? “Morning in America” by Jon Bellion

Do you have any must-see television shows? “Bob’s Burgers” is a must-see for me.

If you could have dinner with any three people, who would it be? And what would you serve? My three closest friends and we would have pizza.

If you got a $1 million to start a company, what would you do? I would start a company to start field hockey in every school and at a younger age, since it’s not available to every school.

If you had to go on a talent show, what would you do? Probably dance since it is the only other thing I know how to do.
