Megan Callicoat: Pittsfield Female Athlete of the Season


Wednesday, June 27, 2018

Who was the unsung hero of your team? Amber Johnson. She really stepped up this season not allowing her injury last season to hold her back. She knows the game from both on the sidelines and on the field. She was known for being shy but stepped up to her captain role this year and broke out of her shell.

If you could improve high school softball in New Hampshire, what would you do? I wish there was a greater interest for fans to come watch the games. Most of the time there was not a large fan turnout.

Do you have any sports superstitions? If so, what are they? I have a lot of superstitions. I never eat right before a game, I haven’t got new cleats in four years, I always wear one batting glove and when I pitch I always smell the game ball.

What are some of the unwritten rules of your sport? Have lots of energy. When there is energy in the dugout, we seem to play well.

Who on your team, coaches included, reminds you of a character in a TV show or movie? I see Emily Thompson as Meredith Grey from Grey’s Anatomy. She is caring, honest and wise.

If life were a video game, what would some of the cheat codes be? I would want codes for extra cash and to have more than one life.

What is something that is really popular now, but in five years everyone will look back on and be embarrassed by? Birkenstock. They are really weird sandals.

Where do you get your news? Mostly on Facebook.

What are the best and worst purchases you’ve ever made? The best thing I bought is my dog. He is one of my best friends. The worst thing I got was a bleaching kit along with bright purple hair dye.

What’s the most ridiculous fact you know? The average size for a Corgi is 10-12 inches.

What’s invisible but you wish people could see? When people are being fake.

If you could go to school in a foreign country, which country would you pick and why? I’d want to go to Barcelona, Spain. It has beautiful views and beaches.

If animals could talk, which would be the rudest? Cats, they are already rude without talking.

What questions would you like to ask a time traveler from 200 years in the future? Do we have flying cars yet?

If you were hired to show tourists what life is really like where you live, what would you show them / have them do? I’d show them Drake Field because that’s where most of our sporting events are held, and it also holds the Balloon Rally that takes place every year.

What is the craziest thing one of your teachers has done? One of my teachers hopped on top of a desk.

What’s the best thing about being a teen? What’s the worst? The best thing would be being able to be care-free and the worst would be drama.
