Favorite Stanford Memory: "The NCAA final was the most important game that many of my teammates (including myself) had ever played in. Naturally, everyone was getting a little nervous when the time came to go the pre-game meeting. Before the official meeting the class of 2009 decided to call a short team meeting to lessen the nervous jitters everyone was having. Once the whole team showed up, Jess, Heather, Kira, Koree and I walked into the room, music blasting and gave a small musical performance to our team. Everyone loved it, and I still know most of the words to the songs we created!"
