Anya is a junior captain of the Spring Lake varsity soccer team. She took some time to answer these questions following Wednesday’s win over Tri-County.

1. Favorite Class: English. I love to be creative and do my own thing.

2. Favorite Athlete: Alex Morgan (U.S. National Team soccer player). She’s just an inspiration. She gives me someone to look up to because of my ACL (knee) injury.

3. Favorite Sports Team: Manchester City (English Premier League soccer).

4. Favorite Phone App: Snapchat, for sure.

5. Can’t-Live-Without Accessory/Device: Watches. I love my watches. I have like 10 of them at home.

6. Go-to Social Media: Instagram.

7. Favorite Movie: 300.

8. Favorite Book: Copper Sun.

9. Favorite TV Show: ESPN’s SportsCenter.

10. Favorite Food: Pasta, or a nice burger.

11. Favorite Pizza Place: Domino’s for sure.

12. Favorite Super Hero: Batman.

13. Favorite Teacher: Mike Brosnan, chemistry.

14. Role Model: My older sister (Brooke). She’s already graduated and she has a good life. She’s someone I look up to.

15. Best Advice You’ve Received: Keep your head up and go strong. Whatever sacrifices are made along the way, you’ll make it in the end.

16. Dream Job: Obviously to play professional soccer. If not, maybe a procurement engineer.

17. Five Words That Describe You Best: Adventurous, talkative, funny, athletic and hard-working.

18. Hobbies: I do a lot of volunteer work with soccer. Otherwise, my friends and family.

19. Coolest Place You’ve Visited: Breckenridge, Colorado.

20. Most Outstanding Athletic Achievement: I would have to say this year, becoming a captain (of the soccer team). It was totally out of left field. I love my team for supporting me and choosing me to be someone to represent them.
