Why did you choose Coker? I liked that Coker was small and close to home, but softball probably played the biggest part in my decision to attend school here.

What is your best memory at Coker (athletic related)? The first time we did our sprint test for softball; seven people threw up within the first two minutes. That’s how you know it’s going to be a good season!

What is your best memory at Coker (non-athletic related)? Getting a 4.0 during my first semester of college is the best non-athletic memory so far.

Do you have a nickname? If so, how did you get it?  When I was younger people called me ‘turtle’ because I was slow and stuck my head out when I ran; as I got faster I eventually became a ninja turtle.
