What is your favorite athletic memory as a Tatnall Hornet?
My favorite athletic memory while here at Tatnall was my junior year homecoming volleyball game. It was so fun and exciting to play with my teammates in front of such a loud excited crowd. It's something I'll never forget!

What is the most important lesson playing sports at Tatnall taught you?
The most important lesson that I learned playing sports at Tatnall was that hard work really does pay off, and if you work hard enough, you can't be ignored.

What was the biggest difficulty you faced in your athletic career, and how did you overcome it?
The biggest difficulty I faced in my Tatnall athletic career was having to learn and play a completely new position in a matter of weeks, but I was able to overcome it through hard work and encouragement from my coaches.

If you could say one thing to younger Hornet athletes, what would it be?
I would say to a younger Tatnall athlete to never take being a part of a team for granted. The bonds and relationships I have made on my sports teams at Tatnall are unlike any other friendships I have. It's truly like a family.
Who is a teammate or coach you would like to spotlight, and how did they help you as a Tatnall athlete? 
One coach that impacted me at Tatnall was Mr. Evans, he was the best coach I've ever played for, and he pushed me to try harder and do better every practice, game, and scrimmage.
