Q&A With Megan Stahlman
D9Sports: What is your favorite sport to participate in and why?
MS: I do not have a favorite, it is a toss-up between soccer and softball. I enjoy them both very much.
D9Sports: What is your favorite memory, moment, game from playing high school sports?
MS: I really enjoy the competitive energy my teams gets, so my favorite memory would be when our whole team came together to beat Ridgway in soccer.
D9Sports: Why do you play high school sports?
MS: I love the fact that it keeps me in good shape and busy, but my favorite part would have to be enjoying the game with the people playing around me.
D9Sports: Who has had the most influence on your athletic career and why?
MS: The person who influenced my athletic career the most is my pitching coach, Don Watson. He didn’t just teach me how to pitch, he taught me how to believe in myself, better myself, and he is always there if I need anything. Don taught me to be a better person overall and that is way bigger than any sport I will ever play.
D9Sports: If you could change one thing about high school sports, what would it be and why?
MS: Like I said before, I love the competitive aspect in sports. If I could change one thing I would make high school sports more competitive.
D9Sports: If you could be president for a day, what would be the one major thing you would do?
MS: I would do whatever I could to help our environment.
D9Sports: What is your ideal place to live? County, City, Suburb? Why?
MS: Country… “She needs wide open spaces, room to make her big mistakes”
D9Sports: What would someone who doesn’t know you be surprised to find out about you?
MS: I really want a farm with cows when I get older.
D9Sports: What is your strongest subject in school?
MS: My strongest subject is the shop classes Clarion-Limestone offers because I am not big on sitting at a desk all day.
D9Sports: If there was one period in history or one event in history you could go back to, what would it be?
MS: I would want to go back in the 70s and live through everything until the 2000s because I enjoy music from those times.
D9Sports: What question do you wish I would have asked you? And what is the answer to it?
MS: What is your greatest weakness and greatest strength as a player?
My greatest weakness is that I look to pass the ball when I might have an opportunity to shoot. My greatest strength as a player is that I keep a positive mental attitude during almost all aspects of the game.
