In Danville, Kentucky resides the Centre Women's Lacrosse team comprised of twenty young women. In order to get to know the members of CWL, for the next few weeks, I will be doing a series on each of my teammates.

This week features one of the team's senior captains: Andrea Wambaugh (pictured above to the left). Andrea sat down with me to answer a few questions.

DB: First, even though we are teammates, could tell me about yourself? Where are you from and why did you choose Centre?

AW: I am from Louisville originally and I chose to come to Centre after having been at two previous schools. I never felt like I really belonged at either school and everyone I came across who was a Centre student or alum spoke greatly about the friendly atmosphere. Once I came here, I felt at home pretty much immediately. It's really the best place to be and I'm in no way ready to leave.

DB: What is your year and your major at Centre?

AW: I am a senior Spanish major with a biology minor.

DB: When did you start playing lacrosse?

AW: I started playing in sixth grade.

DB: Why did you decide to continue playing in college?

AW: Ever since I was little, I wanted to play sports in college. Before lacrosse, I played softball and I always thought that would be what I went on to play in college. When I started playing lacrosse, though, I really fell in love with it and I just couldn't imagine stopping after high school.

DB: Are you happy with your decision to continue playing in college?

AW: It's the best decision I have made thus far.

DB: What is your fondest memory involving lacrosse at Centre?

AW: Last year on spring break, when we had our "Navy Seals" practice on the beach in the freezing rain. It was really miserable at the time, but, looking back, it was something we all had to suffer through together and now we can look back at that moment and laugh (or cry).

DB: Do you have any regrets?

AW: My one regret in life is not having come to Centre from the beginning.

DB: What has been the most rewarding part of being a college athlete?

AW: Being able to play a sport I love with teammates I love while also enjoying all the aspects of being a student at a liberal arts institution.

DB: What are your hopes for the team this year?

AW: I hope we can just go out for every game and give 150 percent effort for the whole game. I hope we leave it all on the field and not come to the end of 60 minutes thinking that we could have tried harder.

DB: What are you hopes for yourself this year?

AW: I hope I can be a great leader for the team on and off the field, during the highs and the lows of the season.

DB: Finally, if you could give advice to the players who follow you, what would you say?

AW: Don't take a single second for granted.

Look out for more articles on members of the Centre Women's Lacrosse team. Our next game will be our home opener on Friday at 7:00 p.m. against Albion.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
