Meredith Ray '18

SCB: How has the transition been from Phoenix to Santa Clara?

EW: The first few weeks were slightly bumpy only because you have to adjust yourself to the new routine but now it feels like my second home!
 

SCB: How have practices been and what have they been like?

EW: Practice has been INTENSE and full of learning experiences. There hasn't been one day when I wasn't dripping in sweat. 
 

SCB: What has been your favorite part of SCU so far?

EW: I'd have to say the beautiful weather. It's so nice to be able to leave your window open all the time especially being from Arizona!
 

SCB: Is it hard to balance schoolwork and practice?

EW: At first, the balance was difficult, yes. But once you get used to everything and your schedule, it starts getting easier!
 

SCB: Your mother played basketball in college. Did she affect your decision to play collegiate basketball?

EW: Yes! My mom was a college athlete and has been an amazing influence in not only my basketball career but in my life as well. She's taught me since I was four years old and definitely played a role in my decision to play here at Santa Clara.
 

SCB: What are you looking forward to most in this upcoming season?

EW: Traveling to Mexico for our Thanksgiving tournament, spending time with the team, and playing against my old teammates!
