Question: As a senior, how do you help lead the team during this three-game losing skid?
Meyers: We know we can beat teams. Our loses have been so close and those hurt the most. We want to get back on track right away.
Question: How tough is it to play in the ACC?
Meyers: Playing in the ACC is really difficult, but at the same time, it pays off. We get more bids to the NCAA Tournament. It is good to have this level of difficulty during the regular season so you are ready for it come tournament time.
Question: With only one more home game left after this week, how is it going to feel to play your last game in Charlottesville?
Meyers: It is going to be sad. I have been here for four years and I can’t believe it is my last home game. It will be exciting, though, because we are playing Wake Forest. My sister went to Wake and she will be here. It will be a tough game so I am glad we are playing at home.
Question: What has been your favorite memory at Virginia?
Meyers: Last year when we beat Boston College in the ACC Tournament. It was a great game and put us into the (NCAA) Tournament.
Question: What are the best and worst parts about playing in the backfield?
Meyers: The best part is that you can see the entire game and how it progresses. The worst part, obviously, is that you are the last line of defense. You feel more pressure.
Question: What advice would you give to future UVa field hockey players?
Meyers: I would say just take every game as if it would be your last. They go by quickly.
Question: What is your major?
Meyers: I am a sociology major and will graduate in the spring. But I have no idea what I am going to do next. I’m open to anything.
Question: What was your favorite college class?
Meyers: I would probably say my Spanish 106 class, but I think it was more because of the professor, and not that class.
Question: What is your favorite spot on Grounds?
Meyers: I like the amphitheater. In between classes I usually sit out there and do some work.
