Who is your funniest teammate and why?
Lexi Fenn because there was never a dull moment with her.
Most memorable game or athletic event: The most memorable game for me took place my freshman year. It was our season opener at home. The recorded national anthem would not play, and my team started to sing the anthem. Soon enough, all the fans, coaches, and opposing players were singing. It was a very special moment for me. Later, we would go on to win our game 21-2 against Newbury. Also, this game was memorable because I got my first collegiate goals and how the team bonded during that game was unforgettable.
What is the greatest lesson you've learned from being a student-athlete?
As an Albertus student-athlete, I have been able to challenge myself outside of the classroom, and push myself to new limits. I have formed strong bonds with my teammates and have made lasting memories. Playing an intercollegiate sport has taught me life lessons that I cannot learn elsewhere. I am very grateful for this experience.
