Q&A--Megan Hollerbach, Broadneck, field hockey

September 06, 2006|By Pat O'Malley

After accumulating 13 goals and 11 assists and being named second-team All-County last fall, Hollerbach will sit out this season. She tore an anterior cruciate ligament last spring and will be on the sidelines as a team captain. Hollerbach, who has a lacrosse scholarship to Penn State, will play that sport in the spring.

How tough will it be not playing this season?

It will be very frustrating because field hockey is a lot of fun and I've really enjoyed playing. But I am still a captain and will help my teammates with pointers and encouragement. I feel like a coach.

How much are you looking forward to the spring and lacrosse?

I'm really looking forward to it because normally I'm a workaholic, and so far I have not been able to do anything. I'll get to play lacrosse.

Are academics high on your priority list?

Absolutely. I have a 3.8 grade point average and 1,770 SAT. Before I even started considering sports, I looked at the academic standings of the colleges I was interested in. I will have a lot of options [academically] at Penn State.

How do spend your spare time?

I spend it with my friends. A lot of them are on their way to college and we do teenage things.

And what are teenage things?

You know, teenage things -- hanging out, going to the movies and going to friends' houses.

Do you read newspapers?

Not that often, and I'm not much of a TV watcher, either. It's easier to catch the news online at night or at school. Most of my friends are the same way.
