2) Who are some teammates you really admire?
Honestly, I don’t think It is possible to just to name a few of my teammates that I admire because they are all such wonderful, well-rounded girls… all different and great in their own way. I think it’s our differences that really allow us to mesh so well as a team.
3) What is a trait that you admire in your coaches?

However my favorite Bible Verse to remember before I step onto the floor is 2 Timothy 2:1-4
“Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.”
6) What is a fun fact about you?
I’m kind of addicted to Hi-C Flashin’ Fruit Punch juice boxes. I drink them way to often for it to be healthy.
