Q-and-A with Plainfield Central’s Kaleigh Nagle

SHARE Q-and-A with Plainfield Central’s Kaleigh Nagle

What was it like winning the Southwest Prairie title?

It’s senior year, and we hadn’t won it in a few years. The conference was stacked this year, so anyone could have won it. It’s definitely big for the team.

What appealed to you about UIC?

I really liked that it is in the city. I wanted an environment like that, and also it’s not far from home so I can come back and visit.

Postseason goals?

We made goals before the start of the season, but now we’re just trying to treat each game like it’s your last. The No. 1 goal is always state, but we’ve got to work our way there. Until then, it’s regional, sectional, supersectional and then state.

You’re in the state championship. What team do you want to face?

As of right now, Plainfield South. We lost to them twice this year. I’ve got a few really good friends on that team, and I’ve played with them since I was little. That would definitely be cool.

Who is your celebrity prom date?

I’ll have to say Channing Tatum.

What is your favorite movie?

“The Benchwarmers.”

Ever been told you look like someone famous?

When I was little, I looked like Lindsay Lohan. Thankfully, I don’t anymore.

What will you remember most about Plainfield Central?

The No. 1 thing that will stand out for me is the softball team. It’s a long year, and it’s definitely a good way to end the school year. Just all the girls who are on the team.
