"What a Feeling", a team favorite.

"Dallying with the Impossible," my freshman seminar with Prof. David Collings.

Best singer on the team?
Although the whole team is shameless when it comes to singing, Sarah Hurley is a rising Mariah Carey due to her constant singing, on the bus, in the locker room, on the field, on gameday.

Most important lesson I have learned being a part of this team?
Every single individual makes a difference whether they are aware of that or not. It's important that everyone is aware of their ability to impact and uses it to the team's advantage. Never more in my life has the phrase "It's the little things that count" resonated with me than with this team. If each person does the little things and aims to make a positive difference, I've realized that this is the only way a team is successful.

If I could be any animal I would be??
A polar bear?clearly.
