TOWSON, Md. - Recently sat down with Amanda Novy for a brief, getting-to-know-you chat. Novy was a captain in 2012 and started 17 of 18 games played. She took 21 shots. How did you feel the spring season went? What improvements did you see in team dynamics and in your own game?
Amanda Novy: I thought our spring season went really well. After having such a hard fall season, it felt good to improve on things that we didn't do as well in the fall. We worked on possession a lot, which really improved our game. Unfortunately, I sprained my ankle in the spring season, so I was not able to play. I have a lot of work to do to get myself ready for the fall. What parts of your game do you see yourself working on in the fall?
AN: In the fall I want to really work on switching the point of attack. I noticed a lot last fall I would tend to take the ball back in the direction it came from. I also want to continue working on being a leader on the field. You were a co-captain last season and will be a senior this fall. What kind of leadership role do you see for yourself?
AN: In the fall I want to be a strong leader for my team. I want to be able to lead by example. I will continue to work hard on and off the field. I will also do my best to motivate my team. I will have a positive relationship with my teammates in order to have a successful season. Why did you decide to become a special education teacher? Have you already completed your student teaching?
AN: I decided to become an elementary and special educator because I really enjoy working with kids. I want to be able to make a difference in children's lives and help them succeed. After working with a group of special education students, I was inspired to become a special educator. I have done some student teaching in my junior year, but I will start full team student teaching in my senior year. Do you have any summer plans? What’s your favorite thing to do in the summer?
AN: My plan for the summer is to just work. I also plan to get ready for the upcoming season. When I am not working, I enjoy going to the beach and going on a boat. I also love to hang out with family and friends.
