My favorite sports event/memory/moment is ... Winning the Hunterdon-Warren-Sussex High School Field Hockey tournament last year. Winning the Limelight field hockey tournament championship at Spooky Nook in 2018 with my Cosmic Storm U19 team and winning my first ever DIII conference college field hockey game to start off the 2019 season at Centenary University were also very exciting.
