Q and A with Hornet of the Week Jade Woll
The Lynchburg College athletic department each week showcases a question and answer feature with our Hornet of the Week. The 11th student-athlete selected this year is women's soccer sophomore Jade Woll.
Woll has been a catalyst for the women's soccer team this season, leading the Old Dominion Athletic Conference with 12 assists. That total ranks her 11th in all of Division III. She contributed three to that total in the ODAC tournament to help Lynchburg win its fourth-straight championship.
You finished the regular season as the ODAC leader in assists. How does it feel knowing there are so many scorers on this team that you could possibly set up at any given point?
It's awesome having teammates who are such strong attackers. No matter where I play the ball, whether it's to a forward or a center-mid or even a defender, this team has such great ability to finish as well as make awesome opportunities. This makes me want to work a lot harder because if I have teammates who are willing to work hard and finish the ball, then it makes me want to work just as hard to give them an opportunity to finish.
What is your favorite moment thus far as a Hornet?
There are so many great moments being a Hornet that it makes it extremely hard to pick a favorite, but I would probably choose ringing the bell. After running up the green monster so many times and ending at the bell tower, ringing the bell is a huge achievement. It shows that all of our hard work and effort will pay off in the end. Also it's really cool to have the opportunity to be able to ring the bell and let everyone know that we won a championship.
What do you like most about LC women's soccer?
What I love most about this team is our relationship with one another. I have never been so close with a team before. Our team is made up of so many different and great individuals that it makes the team so much more fun and entertaining. We are always pushing each other to work harder and to do our best. I think by having such a close team it makes you even more determined to do your best, because you're not just playing for yourself, you're playing for every single person on the team. I think all of us on the team consider each other family and that's what makes us able to work so well together.
How do you think being a student-athlete has affected you personally?
I think being a student-athlete has really benefitted me. It makes me work hard on and off the field. I have to make sure I keep up with my school work as well as work hard at practice. It gives you an overall stronger work ethic and you also become much better at time management.
