Q and A with Hornet of the Week Hannah Myers

The Lynchburg College athletic department each week showcases a question and answer feature with our Hornet of the Week. The first student-athlete selected this year is field hockey junior goalkeeper Hannah Myers.

Myers backstopped the Hornets to wins in the first two games of the season.  Against Frostburg State University, she only allowed two goals.  In the second game of the weekend, Myers made eight saves overall, with seven of them coming in the second half to seal the LC 3-2 victory.

What was it like to win the first two starts of your career this weekend?
I feel blessed, excited, and totally humbled by it all.  I came into the program as a freshman so determined to get that spot, but I'm glad I didn't get it until now, it makes me truly appreciate the privilege of starting and enjoying the win and getting to be apart of it so much more.

What is your favorite moment thus far as a Hornet?
It's more of a compilation of moments.  In the past we've had such a competitive history playing Messiah, going from losing to them my freshman year in the NCAA tournament to beating them the next year, it showed how much we could grow as a team and learn from out defeats, which is a key characteristic that a team needs in order to win a championship.

What are your aspirations after graduation?
I want to coach field hockey at the college level.  Right now I'm playing in college and helping coach with my club team, High Voltage, back home and I love it!  I want to make a career out of it.

What is your favorite thing about LC and this campus?
It's a family.  No matter what goes on my teammates, sorority sisters, coaches, and professors are always there to support and help me.  Even an absolute stranger is willing to help out another on this campus without question.  We all have each other's backs here because we are all going through, or have experienced the same journey.
