  • Who influenced you the most during your time at Memorial and why? Coach Angie Lensing was of the largest influence on my time at Memorial. She was such a positive role model on the field and in the school building. She always pushed us to do our best but we always knew she loved and cared deeply about each one of us.

 

  • Share your favorite Memorial Memory: My favorite memorial memory cannot be pinned down to just one memory. I have so many positive memories that happened at Memorial. Some of them would be attending state as a soccer player and track runner. Also watching many other teams attend their states and cheering for them. Among other good memories was my senior retreat, the many formal dances, and even as a senior participating with my teammates in the talent show. I could continue on about many more favorite memories from my four years at Memorial. It is such a wonderful place to learn and grow.

 

  • What was the most important thing you learned while at Memorial? The most important thing I learned at Memorial was to keep trying and to work hard. Whether it was on the field, court or in a classroom the staff members were always there to provide support but also always challenging the students.

 

  • What advice do you have for current student-athlete to make the most of their experience at Memorial? Remember the team is always first and the bigger picture is where can the team make it. Think how can I support my team even if it is not the role, position, or minutes that you were hoping for? I started with one position in mind and by the end of my four years on Memorial Girls soccer team I was in a completely new spot, a captain, and doing better than I ever thought. The coaches at Memorial love what they get to do every day and will do their best to help you reach your potential. These are some of the best memories you will have being with your teammates on and off the field.
