    What’s you favorite part about playing softball?

    “Being a part of a team and being able to contribute my own talents. I also like the pressure that comes along with it and performing under pressure.”

    Who’s your favorite softball player

    “I was always a fan of Jenny Finch. I once met her at a tournament in New Jersey.”

    If not softball, what sport would you play?

    “I played basketball in high school so I would choose basketball.”

    What’s the dynamic like among the freshman class?

    “I’d say they’re my best friends. I was a walk-on, so I came on and they all knew each other and everything. But we’ve really developed and now we hang out with each other 24/7 outside of softball.”

    Game day rituals and superstitions?

    “I wear a bow and that’s pretty much it.”

    What’s your favorite part of campus?

    “My favorite part is how it’s so big and each campus is different. I live on College Ave., so I get the city feel when I’m at my dorm, but when I come to Livingston it’s more like a traditional college campus. When I go to Cook/Douglass it’s more green and garden-like.”

    What’s your favorite New Brunswick eatery?

    “I like Stuff Yer Face and Hansel n’ Griddle.”
