Q & A With Senior Katie Zenevitch
Feb. 26, 2014
Chestnut Hill, MA -
Senior Katie Zenevitch has been described by the BC coaching staff as one of the hardest workers on the team. The 6-foot-3 senior from Methuen will play her final game at Conte Forum on Thursday night as the Eagles host No. 9 Maryland at 7 p.m. The Eagles second leading scorer took time out of her week to answer some fun questions.
What are your two of your favorite things about being a student-athlete at Boston College?
My favorite thing about being a student-athlete at BC is being able to travel across the US and internationally with my teammates. I was able to experience different cultures through basketball. I also valued the opportunity to connect with other student-athletes
What is your favorite on-the-court memory?
One of my favorite memories is last year when we beat Rutgers in Conte on Kerri Shields' last second layup with four seconds left. After the buzzer sounded I remember running into my teammates arms with pure happiness.
What is your favorite memory away from the court?
One tradition our team has is every Halloween the upperclassmen scare the underclassmen. My freshman year, the seniors tackled us as we walked back from McElroy. It is a hilarious tradition that we still carry out.
Name two people who have very influential in your success at BC?
It's hard to just name two people, but my parents and brother, as well as Sue Downer have been very supportive throughout my four years at BC. They have helped me both on and off the court. My brother, Jimmy, has been my biggest fans not only as I played at BC, but since we started playing basketball. Even though he is my younger brother, I look up to him.
Five years from now where would you like to be
In five years, I hope to have my own classroom teaching elementary age kids. I hope to be working on publishing my first children's book. Ultimately, I want to be enjoying my life with the people I surround myself.
What is your favorite pregame meal?
My favorite pregame meal is mashed potatoes and gravy, chicken parm, and spaghetti with meat sauce. Before every home game, Kat and I mix yellow and blue Powerade with our pregame meal.
What music do you listen to get you going?
Right now, I listen to Beyoncé and techno before games. Usually, you can find me dancing in the locker room before games.
Do you have a message for the fans at BC who have been there the last four years?
To the BC fans I would like to say a huge thank you. Throughout the four years I have been here the BC the fans have always been supportive. The BC Pep Band always brings amazing energy to our games with their signs and loud cheering. The Boston College Women's Basketball program would not be what it is today without the fans' dedication.
