2017-2018
Women's Basketball Team

 

Meghan
 #22 Meghan MacFarlane

  Major: Nursing
  Transfer: UW-Oshkosh

 

Why did you decide to play on this year's basketball team? I’ve played since the second grade and really enjoy playing the game. Last year was the first year I haven’t played, so I wanted to get back into it again.

What do you like about this year's team? Everyone is friendly with each other, and we’re able to laugh at our mistakes and get better the next play, something that I think is really important.

Who would you like to go to dinner with and why? I would like to go to dinner with my Uncle Ken and Grandpa Scherger who passed when I was younger to reminisce on the good old days, and tell them all of my accomplishments since they’ve last seen me. I would be really cool to see them just one more time, and to give them a hug again.

 

Marissa
 #24 Marissa Kaul

  Major: Nursing
  Transfer: UW-Milwaukee

Why did you decide to play on this year's basketball team? I played on the team last year and really enjoyed it so I wanted to play again this year and I love basketball.

What do you like about this year's team? I like how well we get along and the different talent everyone brings to the team.

Who would you like to go to dinner with and why? Jordy Nelson be-cause I am a big Packers fan and he is a great athlete with good character and a gorgeous smile.

 

Sammie
 #25 Sammi Brown

  Major: Athletic Training
  Transfer: Undecided

Why did you decide to play on this year's basketball team? I missed playing in high schools after I took a year off, and I though why not. I also wanted to meet new people instead of my friends from high school and I thought this would be a great way, I also wanted to get back in shape.

What do you like about this year's team? The team is filled with different personalities and we can have fun and joke around, and we have to push each other since it is a small team.

Who would you like to go to dinner with and why? I would go to dinner with my grandma and my dad. My dad passed away in 2009 and my

Grandma in 2015. My grandma was my rock after my dad had died and I would do anything to hear them say “hi” one more time.

 

Audra
 #30 Audra Brandenburg

  Major: Elementary Education
  Transfer: UW-Milwaukee or UW-Oshkosh

 Why did you decide to play on this year's basketball team? I really missed playing school sports, so I decided to join because I wanted to have that experience one last time. I knew I would be really disappointed in myself if I didn't take the opportunity.

What do you like about this year's team? I think it's cool that all of us girls have very different personalities, but we get along well, and we make it work. We gain better relationships with each other because there are so few of us, and there aren't any cliques within us like there were in my middle and high school teams.

Who would you like to go to dinner with and why? I would really like to have dinner with my parents. My mom is just awesome, and my dad passed away when I was sixteen. I would give almost anything to be able to have dinner with him again.

 

 

Greta
 #31 Greta Strasser

  Major: Animal Science
  Transfer: UW-River Falls

  Why did you decide to play on this year's basketball team? I always liked basketball, and this was a fun way to be able to play college sports with a group of
really great girls.
What do you like about this year's team?  I like the fact that it’s a small group, and that we can all joke around with each other and have fun.
Who would you like to go to dinner with and why?  I would definitely go to dinner with my twin
sister because I haven’t seen her in a long time.  We would probable just laugh the entire time at
inside jokes rather than eating.  Plus, she wouldn’t make fun of me for just eating ice cream.

 

Kaytie
 #32 Kaytie Lighthizer

  Major: Athletic Training
  Transfer: UW-Oshkosh

Why did you decide to play on this year's basketball team? I’m one of two returning players and I’m excited to see what my past experience of Wildcat basketball will bring to the table for me this season. Like last year, we only have 6 girls this season so I’m interested in seeing us going all the way to State Championships.
What do you like about this year's team? Despite having 6 girls, there is plenty of character as well as heart on this team.
Who would you like to go to dinner with and why: Demi Moralous be-cause she is a very talented and successful volleyball player.
