Favorite Part/Memory of ND Water Polo:
Tournaments, especially Nationals, and the California Spring Break trip.  Basically any opportunity where I get to spend condensed amounts of time with the team. 

Water polo (duh), hanging out with the team, hiking, skiing– just being outside in general– and spending time with family and friends.

Favorite Season at Notre Dame:
Spring!  It finally gets warm, there are beautiful flowers blooming everywhere, I can break out my shorts and drink iced coffee, and of course because it’s water polo competition season.

Favorite Spot on Notre Dame Campus:
The lakes 

Favorite Sport/Sports Team/Athlete:
Water Polo!
