Persistent

What do you love most about being a student-athlete at Morris??

What I love most about being a student-athlete at Morris is that we are a smaller campus and I've had the chance to get to know many other great student-athletes and coaches in classes and around our campus.

Tell us about a unique experience you've had as a student at Morris? 

The best experience I've had here at Morris is studying abroad in Australia. I was lucky enough to study sport culture in Sydney and Melbourne with a small group of classmates.

Who has been the most influential on your athletics career and why? 

My parents because they've always been there to support me through everything and I appreciate everything that they have done and continue to do for me.

What is the greatest lesson you've learned from being a student-athlete?

Time management. There is always so much to do and never enough time to do it but somehow we always manage to get everything to work out (thanks to patient professors and supportive coaches).
