In The Batter's Box With Coty Tolar

Coty Tolar

April 14, 2007

What is your most prized possession?
Pictures of my family and friends, everything else can be replaced, not my memories!

Most people would be surprised that I...
Am a huge girly girl! Pink is my favorite color and it is ALWAYS on my toenails!

What is your greatest fear?
Not making a difference. I want to be remembered for something great!

My favorite toy as a kid was...
My bike. My parents had to install a bell to ring for dinner because my brother and I would be somewhere in the neighborhood or woods riding our bikes.

The one condiment I can't live without...
Mayo. Just kidding- I hate mayo! I would have to say ketchup for fries, but mustard for sandwiches and burgers!

What is your favorite holiday and why?
Halloween, its my BIRTHDAY!

Which actress would you pick to play you in a movie?
Great question... hmm, how about Scarlett Johannson, she might be able to handle it. Haha.

My parents were right when they told me...
College would fly by and to enjoy every minute of it because then the real world begins.

What is the most embarrassing song on your ipod?
I'm not embarrassed by any song on my iPod, but some of my teammates think my extensive Britney Spears collection is a bit over the top.

The thing in life I am most thankful for is...
The opportunities that have been given to me. My parents did everything for me to get me where I am today.

The best thing about playing college softball is?
The relationships you build with your teammates. You have an entire team of built in family and best friends!

I would buy a ticket to go see...
Justin Timberlake, and not to be repetitive, but Britney Spears too!

What do you want to buy with your first paycheck?
I want to find a job first! Then, I want to buy groceries so I can eat! After the essentials, I would probably by some form of clothing, although I'm still trying to convince people that clothing IS essential.

What is your favorite UVa memory outside of softball?
I woke up one morning during first year and it had snowed 12 INCHES over night! It was by far the absolute most snow I had ever seen and it was only 15 degrees outside... I'm from Atlanta, that doesn't happen there. I instantly called my parents, took pictures and emailed them out to my southern friends!

What do you love most about UVa and why?
I love the environment here. The support system is amazing. The entire athletic department feels like one huge family and that's important to have when you are far away from home.
