Q and A with Hornet of the Week Angela Bosco

The Lynchburg College athletic department each week showcases a question and answer feature with our Hornet of the Week. The 1st student-athlete selected this year is women's soccer senior Angela Bosco.

Bosco is in her third season as a member of the #9-ranked women's soccer program. She has scored 102 points combined the past two seasons, including an Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) high, 61 points last season. She continued her strong play this past weekend with two goals, including the game-winner against Birmingham Southern College, and an assist, while leading the Hornets to a pair of victories in the Roanoke College Kickoff Tournament.

 After such a successful junior campaign, how important was it to get off to a fast start your senior year?

As a team, it was extremely important to get off to a fast start because it really sets the tone and gives us confidence for the season. I think by us having such a successful weekend it is going to give us momentum heading into our conference games. As an individual, it was important for me to get off to a fast start because every game I play in is once less game I get to play with my senior class. The harder we work as a team, the more games we will be guaranteed in the postseason.

What is your favorite moment thus far as a Hornet?

There are a lot of favorite moments for me as a Hornet, but if I had to choose a one moment it would be last year's regular season game against Bridgewater. We battled the entire match against them, had plenty of opportunities to score but we just couldn't finish and ended up going double overtime with them. We scored in the last 30 seconds and won the game. This was definitely one of my favorite moments because it really showed our character as a team. We never gave up at any point in that game, and it showed us that by coming together and giving 100 percent the entire time no one could stop us.

What do you like most about LC women's soccer?

What I like most about LC Women's soccer is each and every year we are so close. The chemistry that we have as a team is what gets us so far, when one of us goes down we all make sure we pick her up; when someone is having a bad day we make sure we make it better. This team is my family and they are the reason why I look forward to going to practice each and every day.

How do you think being a student-athlete has affected you personally?

I think being a student-athlete has overall given me a better work ethic both on and off the field. As a senior, I've been able to push my teammates and encourage them to push themselves to their limits. Off the field, having a good work ethic has made me realize that I can excel that much more in my studies as well.
