What sports did you participate in during your high school career, and for how long?
I played soccer for four years, was on the swim team for two years, and played baseball for four years.
What is your favorite Vermilion sports moment?
My favorite Vermilion sports memory has probably been any time I’ve gotten to hang out with my teammates off the field, like getting food or going to another sporting event as a squad. Threepeating as SBC champs in baseball and soccer was cool too.
What other activities do you participate in besides sports?
I am a volunteer for Project more at the middle school.
What are your plans after graduation?
I’ll be going to Walsh University to study Communications and English and I’ll also be playing soccer.
What is one thing about your high school career that you wish you knew as a Freshman and you want the younger athletes to know?
Don’t take yourself too seriously. Joke around, have fun, and catch a vibe.
