Enjoyable season?

I was pretty excited. We got a lot further than anybody expected. Playing JD that last game was very amazing. We had a shot at winning, but we couldn’t pull it out at the end. Still, my senior year was one of the best ones anyone could have.

1,000-1,000 club?

It’s pretty amazing. Hopefully, I set a bar for the younger girls and the girls who are in junior high and elementary school. Hopefully, they want to push for that goal and beat what I accomplished.

Soccer star?

I’ve started since eighth grade, so hopefully we’ll be able to make it to the (state semifinals) again this year. We made it so far in basketball season that I missed about four or five games. My first game back was against Auburn, and that was a tough one. We lost, but it was a good one to get my feet going again.

Basketball or soccer?

Right now, it’s basketball. That’s where my heart is. Soccer, I’m good at it. I’m not going to lie, I’m very good at it, but the basketball court is where I want to be.

Next few months?

It’s going to be tough thinking, ‘Hey, this could be my last time ever playing soccer.’ And I’m still deciding what school I want to go to for basketball. A lot of decisions are going to have to be made. It’s going to be interesting. It’s something good to put myself through.
