Q-and-A with Plainfield North’s Carlie Corrigan

SHARE Q-and-A with Plainfield North’s Carlie Corrigan

Tough seeing the season end?

It was tough losing to Bolingbrook. You don’t want to run into a team like that in the playoffs, but you’ve got to get past them. There’s a lot of hope with the younger players (at Plainfield North).

Have you improved as a player?

I like to think I’ve become a well-rounded player. The big thing I tried this year was helping the young girls learn. I wanted to prepare myself and push past my own limits.

Why Southern Illinois?

With Southern, I really liked the school, the campus and the community. It’s a college town, and the players relate to each other. It was great visit, and it was all pluses.

Favorite basketball moment?

Even though it was a loss, the Plainfield East game (scoring 43 points). I looked up at the scoreboard, and you can’t explain it. It was an amazing feeling.

I would improve …

Ballhandling under pressure. I prefer to score off the pass. I’ve never played the point guard.

What’s your favorite movie?

“Mean Girls”. Very quotable. I say a line sometimes and no one gets it but me, but I love it.

Who is your celebrity prom date?

Channing Tatum. No, I’d pick Matthew McConaughey, a little older, but I still like him.

What will you remember most about Plainfield North?

I’ll miss playing with Kaitlyn O’Boye because we played together for 11 years. Not hanging out, not driving to practice, I’ll miss that the most.
