Track and Field
Favorite Class(es)? Algebra 2. Any math class will always be my favorite.
Favorite Teacher? Mrs. Straub in Junior High. She always supported me and still does.
What's in your MP3 Player? My music varies from Bon Jovi and Aerosmith to Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj.
Favorite TV Show? Law & Order.
Favorite Movie? Step Brothers. My friends and I quote it quite often.
Favorite Video Game? I'm always up for a good game of Halo with my boyfriend.
Favorite Food? Anything my "Nunnie" makes -- especially her spaghetti.
Favorite Athlete and why? Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics. He's quick, small and a true team player.
What's your cell phone ring tone and why? 'All I Do Is Win' by D.J. Khaled. It always pumps me up before my meets.
Favorite memory in your sport and why? Always knowing I've done my best without regrets is always what I want to remember, but breaking the record in the 300 low hurdles.
Favorite Hobby or off-day activity? I love shopping and hanging with my sisters, spending time with my family and relaxing with my boyfriend.
What sport do you admire that you don't play and why? That would have to be ice hockey. You have to be in top shape and it requires a lot of energy and coordination.
Who is your most influential person(s) and why? My mom. She pushes me in academics and athletics and makes me become a better person. My dad for his guidance and patience. My sisters for their weird sense of humor. Any my grandparents for always being there.
What do you like about your sport? The thrill of being able to improve your time in every race and working to get better.
Who would you like to spend a day with and why? That would be Michael Jordan, the reason is obvious. And Ellen Degeneres. Her dry sense of humor cracks me up.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? I plan on going to WVU and entering their Physical Therapy program. It would also be great to coach kids in basketball and track.
