1. Tell me a little bit about your back round in lacrosse before you got to Plymouth.

RF- When I was younger, I would always play lacrosse with my dad. Girl's lacrosse was unheard of in my town, so I didn't get as much experience at a young age as I would have liked. High school was when it really had started up for me, my freshman year, I played Junior Varsity. The three years following that I played on the Varsity team and when it was my senior year, I had become captain. I immediately fell in love with lacrosse and knew I wanted to continue playing in college.  


2.What was your favorite part of the Dallas Spring Break trip?

RF- I loved going to Dallas and being able to experience everything with my teammates. This is such a hard question because I loved every part. If I had to choose, though, I'd say visiting Fort Worth; it is such an authentic town with so much history in it. 


3. What has been the best part of the season so far?

RF- The best has yet to come for us; honestly every moment has been great. We keep putting ourselves in good positions to have amazing experiences.


4. Being a midfielder, what do you enjoy playing more (between offense and defense), and why?

RF- I enjoy playing both defense and offense. Being able to make a difference on the offensive side, by creating opportunities for my teammates or whatever it may be is something I love to do. I always have that defensive mindset and have never felt so confident than I do now when being out there with the other defenders. I love being able to work with both the attacking and defensive units because we all put so much trust in each other and believe in one another.


5. Why has this team been so successful this season?

RF- We have a great team, great coaches, and admirable captains who want to be successful. Those are the main factors that drive our team to be so victorious.


6. Do you have any pre-game rituals? If so, what are they?

RF- I don't really have any specific rituals, but I do need to listen to music before games to get me pumped up and focused.


7. What is one unusual talent that any given person on the team has that would surprise people in Plymouth? 

RF- I hear that Field-Z has some pretty sweet dance moves. 


8. If you were to win the lotto, what would be the first three things you would do?

RF- If I won the lottery, wow, there's so much I could do. I'd definitely give money back to my parents for helping me with paying for college. I'd donate to the Plymouth State Lacrosse program because it is becoming bigger and better, for both the women's and men's teams. Lastly, I would use the money to build more lacrosse programs in my hometown so that younger girls can experience this amazing sport at a young age like I wish I had the opportunity to do. 


9. What are your expectations for the team for the rest of the year?

RF- I expect for us to go very far; LEC Champions and beyond. We have been growing so much as a team and are only going to grow even more together. 


10. Do you have anything to say to the Plymouth community?

RF- Thank you for all of the support we have received and also believing so much in our program. Your support really makes a difference to our team and we are always looking to do anything we can to give back to you.
