What is your favorite athletic memory as a Tatnall Hornet?
During my junior year field hockey, we were in overtime against Sanford. We beat them, and I was one of the seven girls on the field, which led us to the quarterfinals of the playoffs.

What is the most important lesson playing sports at Tatnall taught you?
Work hard because, in the end, it pays off.

What was the biggest difficulty you faced in your athletic career, and how did you overcome it?
Not having enough confidence when I was younger. During lacrosse, I would get so scared that I would drop the ball and disappoint older kids on the team.

If you could say one thing to younger Hornet athletes, what would it be?
Work hard and put everything into practice because it makes the difference in games and shows the coaches you're eager to get in the games.

Who is a teammate or coach you would like to spotlight, and how did they help you as a Tatnall athlete? 
Coach Kelsey Martin '15. She helped me throughout field hockey with the little and big things and was always there to talk if I had any questions or comments.
