Student-Athlete: Q&A

This is Hannah McCravy, a senior softball player here at Campbell University.

What is your favorite part about being a student-athlete?

My favorite part of being a student athlete is being able to make new relationships with other student-athletes on and off the field.

What is the hardest part about being a student-athlete?

The hardest part of being a student-athlete is managing my time wisely. Being able to make good grades and be great on the softball field is very time consuming but worth it in the end. 

What is your regular day schedule?

My regular schedule starts by waking up at 5:30 for 6am weights, then class from 8-1:50 and practice 2:15 until 5:30. Then, I usually get dinner with my teammates and get ready to take on the next day by doing school work. On days when I have extra time, I like to play mini basketball with my roomies.

How do you keep yourself balanced with school and sports?

I have to make sure I plan my day out before it has started. I need to know what I have to get accomplished before and after practice so that I am prepared. I like to keep a calendar that tells me when assignments are due and when I need to start working on those assignments.

What advice would you have for a freshman student-athlete that you have learned over the years?

My advice I would give to a freshman student-athlete would be to never take the days on and off the field for granted. Do not let school or sports stress out too much to the point where you forget to have fun. Remember you are apart of the 6% of college students that get to be apart of an athletic team, take pride in that and be the best version of yourself as you can. 

How does it feel to call yourself a student-athlete here at Campbell?

It feels great to be able to call myself a student-athlete here at Campbell because of how hard I have worked to get here and how awesome the athletic department is. It is crazy thinking about all of the outstanding athletes that have been apart of and are currently apart of Campbell athletics. I’m definitely proud to say that I am a fighting camel. Roll humps!
