Cobra Spotlight- Hannah Cook, Women's Cross Country

Position: We all have the same job on a cross country team. RUN!

Why did you choose Coker? Because Coach Vic was so cool! The great weather and friendly people everywhere helped also.

What is your best memory at Coker (athletic related)? Taking first place in our first race and setting a new school record!

What is your best memory at Coker (non-athletic related)? Too many, but I would have to say either flipping the canoe with my teammates or late-night freeze tag with some teammates, classmates and the best RA who isn’t even my RA, Steven Strother.

Which athletic team would you play on at Coker other than your own?  I would love to try lacrosse, or play basketball because it is one of the best sports ever invented.

Favorite class: Hmm, I have to say my favorite class is Music 230 with professor Graham Wood.

Favorite professor: Ugh, I hate choosing favorites, it’s so mean! I would say a tie between Dr. Clark and Dr. McLaughlin, because both of them are very well-educated, professional and nice, so I cannot differentiate enough to choose one.

Plans after graduation: Become a personal trainer and some other form of exercise enthusiast wherever my husband is stationed.  He is a United States Marine. Semper Fi!

Favorite movie: I hate this question!  I have to say Despicable Me, Hunger Games and Cool Runnings. And about 20 more, depending on my mood.

Favorite type of music: Hip-hop/rap and classic rock.

Favorite food: All of these questions that have multiple answers… I choose peanut butter and jelly on whole grain bread.

Favorite sports team: Cleveland Cavaliers

Favorite color: Lime green and/or electric blue

Favorite TV show: I don’t have time for TV; I have too far to run!

Most prized possession: My husband’s old Penn State jacket. It’s the first article of clothing he ever gave me; although he never went to Penn State, so I don't know why he owned it.

What is something people may not know about you? I had a warrant out for my arrest in my hometown because I forgot about a speeding ticket!

Do you have a nickname? If so, how did you get it? Banana- Because it rhymes with Hannah, of course, and I love bananas

One word that describes you: Optimistic
