Porsha Zweifel- Senior- Girls Cross Country

Q: What do you think makes cross country interesting to watch?

A: “There’s no other sport that can have as much interaction as cross country. Viewers rush to different parts of the course to cheer others on and bolt to the finish line to meet them at the end with a rushed feeling.”

Q: What is your favorite memory from cross country?

A: “My favorite memory is when the team had a free run, and we all ran to Castle Park and played tag. Then after tag, we went to the water ark cooled off then ran back to the school. It was so much fun!”

Q: What emotions do you feel when you play well?

A: “When I play tennis, I feel great. It doesn’t matter if we win or if we lose; it’s the fact that we’re there. I have a good relationship with the girls on the team, so overall, I feel excited when we go to the meets, and I get to see them.”

Q: What is the best part about competing?

A: “I feel very accomplished when I do something well because I know that I have been working towards it the whole time. The best part is being with everyone and showing off what you have been working towards the entire time.”

Kyra Carrell- Senior- Girls Golf

Q: How do you prepare for a match?

A: “I prepare for a golf match by getting to the course at least an hour early. I leave my phone in the van and start to warm up by hitting golf balls on the range then move to putting and chipping to prepare all the shots I may be taking throughout the day.”

Q: What is one memory you’ll never forget?

A: “My favorite memory was my freshman year. The golf team went to state as a team, and it got snowed out. So that Sunday night we got to go bowling, eat dinner and see a movie. We spent a lot of time together, and it was just a good way to end off the season with the girls.”

Q: What are you most excited for this year?

A: “This season, I am most excited to see this team do big things and go get a state championship, and to win together one last time would be the best thing I could ask for.”
