SHARE Q-and-A with Lincoln-Way North’s Ashley Weringa

What’s the most fun part about playing basketball?

Beig together with the girls and seeing where you start from and where you end.

Which other Lincoln-Way do you like the most and the least?

I like Central because I have a few friends there. The least (laughing) is East, because we haven’t beaten them in my four years in high school.

Any good stories about your number (22)?

My cousin (Missy Mitidiero) played in high school and she was No. 22.

If you could have a player from another team to be your teammate, who would it be?

Alex Shermulis, of Providence. She’s my best friend.

Has anyone told you that you look like someone famous?

I’ve been told I look like Miley Cyrus, which I don’t see whatsoever.

Your dream celebrity prom date?

I have two, Gerard Butler and Justin Bieber. I couldn’t pick one.

Ifyou could be one of your teammates for a day, who is it?

Sam Pietruszynski. Sam is one of the weirdest people I’ve ever met. I think it would be different to be her for one day.

What’s the funniest story you can tell about coach Nair?

Probably the day he and the other coaches dressed up in wigs and practiced with us.

Is cheerleading a sport?

The gymnastics part of it is, but not the cheering part.

What does your mirror tell you about yourself?

It tells me that I’ve overcome a ton of things in four years of high school, and it made me a lot stronger.
