1) What were your preparations leading up to the state meet?
We went to ski the course a couple of weeks before the race so we could get familiar with it. I was also making sure not to get sick.
2) How did you deal with the pressure and emotions that come along with competing in a state meet?
 I wasn't too nervous before the race, but I had just enough nerves to stay focused before and during the race.
3) What was going through your mind at the starting gate?
 Before the race I was making sure to warm up enough since there were a lot of hills at the start of the course. In the classic race, I was also making sure that my skis weren't icing up.
4)  What do you contribute your success to?
A great team and great coaches along with roller skiing in the summer.
5)  What are your goals/plans for next year?
  I plan on continuing to roller ski in the summer. 
6) What surprised you the most about this season?
 I was surprised at how many races we were still able to have, even with the lack of snow.
7) What moment/event will you remember the most from the season?
States this year was a really fun race. I enjoyed the course and all of the spectators cheering us on.
8) What do you like most about Nordic Skiing?
 I like the challenge and I like meeting new people in the sport.
