Time out with Abigail Hersey

School: Carson High

Year: Senior

Sport: Tennis

Q: What are your favorite sports and why?

A: Tennis and hiking because I like to move my feet.

Q: Who is your favorite professional athlete?

A: I don't have a favorite professional athlete because I don't like to watch sports.

Q: How do you feel about drug/alcohol testing at the high school level. Should it be random or should everybody on the team be tested at least once?

A: High school drug testing should be left random, but it should be for the whole school, not just the athletes.

Q: If you saw one of your teammates involved with drugs/alcohol use, would you talk to them first or turn them into the coach?

A: I am confident that all the girls with me on the team would never do that sort of thing. However, if I saw a friend of mine using then I would talk to her first, and if I was unable to change her ways, I would talk to my coach.

Q: The Olympics just ended. How much of the coverage did you watch, and what sports did you enjoy watching the most?

A: I watched swimming and gymnastics, all while I was at Kim Lee's eating sushi, otherwise I wouldn't have watched the Olympics. I enjoyed watching the gymnastics team win.

Q: Do you have a favorite TV show?

A: Greys Anatomy.

Q: Do you have a favorite food?

A: Plain yogurt flavored with honey.

Q: If you could change one thing about your school, what would it be?

A: I would change the new bathroom pass policy. Using the toilet shouldn't be such a big deal.

Q: After graduation, where do you plan to attend college, and what are you looking at in terms of a major?

A: I am planning to apply for a year of exchange right after high school, and then I plan on attending UNR. I'm looking into chemistry as a pre-med major.
