What is your favorite athletic memory here at Shenandoah University?
Any of the away trips or team bonding; I love our team, we are a family. Every time we get together, we have a blast, especially dance parties!
What is your favorite part about being an athlete at Shenandoah University?
The community; coming in with all of these seniors from every sport going through four years together and seeing everyone getting older.
What are your plans after graduation?
I am going to pursue master degrees in both special education and school counseling.
What has being a student-athlete at Shenandoah University meant to you?
Being an athlete here has meant so much to me, it has helped me learn more about myself, formed new friendships, and be more involved in the Winchester and Shenandoah community. I wouldn't change anything about my experience here, I love SU and our Hornet family. I couldn't imagine being anywhere else.
Sam's take…Sydney has been a strong offensive force for the Hornets throughout her career. She was named Rookie of the Week her freshman year and has continued to excel ever since. She has made her mark not only on the field but in the classroom as well. In her senior year she has been inducted into the Omicron Delta Kappa leadership honor society. Sydney has been far from home throughout the past four years but has had all the support of her SU family. Good luck with your future Sydney!
