Question: You’ve had a great start to the spring despite coming off an injury, how does it feel to be back on the field?
Weymouth: It is definitely exciting and great to be back. A sprained ankle is a minor injury compared to others, but I never knew how frustrating it would be to be immobile and stuck on the sidelines.
Question: What are your expectations for the team this spring?
Weymouth: We are an extremely talented team with a lot of potential and this season will be a testament as to how well we come together as a team and compete. There is not a doubt in my mind that we can go all the way, so we will continue to practice hard and hope to be the best.
Question: Who or what inspires you?
Weymouth: My family, as clich as that may sound, is a constant inspiration of mine. They continue to support me and have loved following our team for the past two years.
Question: What does it mean to compete in the ACC for lacrosse?
Weymouth: The ACC is by far the most competitive league in women's and men's lacrosse and nothing is more satisfying than beating an ACC team. These are the games that we value most in a season and because of the high level of play that each team contributes, we typically face ACC teams at least two or three times in one season.
Question: You faced North Carolina three times last year and clinched the ACC championship by upsetting the Tar Heels. How eager is the team to face them again?
Weymouth: They have always given us a great game so it’s expected that will be the case this Sunday. They are feisty and don't back down, but beating them on our own turf is always nice!
Question: Describe the game day atmosphere at Klckner Stadium
Weymouth: Unfortunately, our team does not draw as big of a crowd as the men’s team does, but our fans are devoted and they raise the intensity of our games. Klckner is by far the most well maintained field we play on and the atmosphere is unmatched. Sunny spring days up on Klckner can be some of the best days of the year.
Question: What do you do on your days off?
Weymouth: I enjoy relaxing, resting my legs and having fun with friends. Days off do not come very often in the spring so I definitely try and take full advantage of them.
Question: What is something only a few people know about you?
Weymouth: I skipped eighth grade!
