With playoffs a week away, what goals does the team have?
Our goal is to make sectionals and then we’re state-bound. We really are. We’ve got a lot of girls who are very versatile and can play a lot of different positions.
What would you rather do: turn a double play to end a game or hit a walk-off winner?
I would like to turn the double play, because I would like to share that with someone else.
What appealed to you about the University of Illinois?
The school is close enough to home, distance-wise, and I really wanted to go to a Big Ten school and play Division I softball.
You can improve something about your game with a snap of your finger, no practice necessary. What would you pick?
Probably more consistent power. I have power and I can hit home runs, but I would like some more home run hitting in general.
Who is your celebrity prom date?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He is really quirky, and I think he would be really fun.
What is your favorite movie?
Yeah, it would probably be “500 Days of Summer” (starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt). I am a big fan, and I like the twist at the end.
What will you remember most about being at Joliet West?
After the Joliet Central split, we have had a lot more school spirit. Once the two schools split, West really united and with that new identity, “We are the Tigers.”
