What’s your favorite part of being on the girls wrestling team?: The friends I made and the way it challenges me. 

 Do you have any pre tournament rituals?: Yeah, I put some hype music on and get in the zone. I also plan what I might do when I get out on the mat. 

How do you deal with stress/nerves before a match?: I usually block everyone out and sit by myself so I can really think about my strategy. I’m less nervous when I know what I might do when I step on the mat.
