Cardinal Capsule: Jennifer Wilson
Sept. 2, 2003
Stanford volleyball team will be fun to watch this year because:
Our team has a lot of great chemistry on and off the court. The team this year looks like they are having a great time and combined with our explosive plays, the crowd will be able to feel the energy!
For me to improve as a player I need to:
Watch and learn from the older players and coaches as well. I will need to focus on the fundamentals, especially my arm swing. Most of all I need to maintain a positive attitude no matter what is thrown my way.
The thing I like about sports is:
The mental challenge as well as the physical challenge that is presented to you as an athlete. Sports also provide an escape from the outside world and provide a postive way to channel emotions. I love sports because you are able to meet incredible people and work as a team to accomplish a goal.
If I could add one team to the schedule it would be:
University of Colorado at Boulder.
The most difficult opposing arena to play in is:
Washington State University because the crowd is intense.
A friend from another college volleyball team:
Amy Lou Meisen-Vehrs from Central Washington University.
Favorite midnight snack:
What makes Maples Pavilion so special:
The spectacular history of the sport and the great fans that attend all of the games.
If I had to cook all of my meals, I'd probably survive on:
Top Ramen, mashed potatoes, rice, and macaroni and cheese.
Favorite T.V. show:
Will and Grace.
My parents were right when they told me:
That as long as I work hard and believe, I can accomplish anything.
I'd like to switch places for a day with:
Favorite non-volleyball activity:
Reading and hanging out with my closest friends.
My most prized possession is:
My family and their love.
If you were going on a road trip and could only take one cd, which one would you take:
The Dave Matthews Band--Under the Table and Dreaming.
The best advice I ever received was:
To follow my heart.
Opponent you would most like to beat:
The current or former Stanford athlete I most enjoy watching perform:
All of the Stanford volleyball players.
If I could bring anything from my hometown to Stanford it would be:
Since coming to Stanford I have learned:
To be independent and not be afraid to ask questions.
Ten years from now I hope to be:
Starting a family and working as a photojournalist for Sports Illustrated or National Geographic.
One moment in history I wish I could have seen:
The first moon landing.
After my Stanford career is over, I'd like to be remember as:
A hard working athlete, student, and friend who made others happier if for only a moment.
Mashed potatoes and gravy.
Least Favorite Food:
Favorite sport other than volleyball:
If I won $1 million dollars, I would:
