Brittany Medel
Senior Forward

Where are you from?

What sports do you play?
I do swim, basketball and then track and field.

Which is your favorite to play?

Because it is like a family, we all know each other. We’ve been playing since freshman year.

What’s your favorite food?

Favorite sports team or athlete?
Stephen Curry, definitely.

Favorite movie?
“Coco,” that one that just came out.

Favorite animal?

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

What do you do in your free time?
I like to draw and explore, so being out in nature, hiking and biking around.

Do you have any pregame routines or superstitions?
No I just like to get hyped because I’m always nervous. So hyping up, playing around with all of the girls.

Describe your coach in one word.
He’s awesome. He’s a great coach.

What makes a good teammate?
I would say getting along with everyone is huge because if you don’t get along with someone then that blows off the whole game. You guys don’t connect, there’s no communication, so getting along with everyone is huge.

What are the benefits of playing high school sports?
Meeting new people, experiencing new plays, new techniques that you maybe didn’t know in middle school. Everything is more advanced, more high speed, more strict than in middle school.

What are your future goals?
I don’t plan on doing any sports, but definitely getting a career as a physical trainer.

What do you look forward to most after graduation?
I would say rooming with my friends and going to college, it should be fun.
