Shelby Cole: Gilford Female Athlete of the Season


Wednesday, June 27, 2018

What was the biggest challenge you or your team faced this season and how did you overcome it? Communication was one of the biggest challenges we faced as a team. We overcame the challenge after everyone realized that communication is one of the most important aspects of sports, and started talking to each other.

Who was the unsung hero of your team? I don’t think we have an unsung hero.

If you could improve high school lacrosse in New Hampshire, what would you do? I would try and make it more competitive like it is in states such as Maryland, and get more kids to start out earlier on club teams so that they have experience and have their fundamentals down.

Do you have any sports superstitions? If so, what are they? I have to wear the same exact hair tie for every game, no matter the sport.

What are some of the unwritten rules of your sport? Always jog to your spot, especially running on to the field or going behind after a foul is made. You shouldn’t ever be walking back after a goal, to the side line, anywhere.

If life were a video game, what would some of the cheat codes be? Some of the cheat codes would be a restart button and instant transport to where ever, whenever you would like.

Where do you get your news? Fox News, but in school it’s always CNN.

What’s the most ridiculous fact you know? The most ridiculous fact I know is that an average human creates enough spit in their life time to fill an Olympic size pool.

What’s invisible but you wish people could see? Ghosts (if they are real).

If you could go to school in a foreign country, which country would you pick and why? I would pick a place in Central America, because I could learn about a different culture and teach them some of ours. It would also be a good mission trip and experience.

If animals could talk, which would be the rudest? Definitely a cat because they would be passive aggressive.

What questions would you like to ask a time traveler from 200 years in the future? I would ask about the new technology, and about any wars or important events that happened.

If you were hired to show tourists what life is really like where you live, what would you show them / have them do? I would have them come to school with me for a day, show them the lake, a sports event and take them to a local restaurant.

What is the craziest thing one of your teachers has done? I wouldn’t call it crazy, but one of my teachers tripped over a small trash can while teaching class, got up and pretended nothing happened.

What’s the best thing about being a teen? What’s the worst? The best part about being a teen is the freedom and opportunity, and the worst part is being still looked at as a kid.
