Wall is using the summer to prepare for a busy final year of high school. She is a defender on the girls’ soccer team, a wing/defenseman in hockey and a sprinter/long jumper in track and field. Here is closer look at Wall:

The best movie I’ve seen in the last year: I loved “Catching Fire,” but “22 Jump Street” was a close second.

Three words or phrases my friends or teammates might use to describe me: Outgoing, hardworking and goofy.

Three songs I never skip on my iPod: “Summer of ’69” by Bryan Adams; “Drunk in Love” by Beyonce; and “Paper Planes” by M.I.A.

What are your three favorite apps? Phase 10, Netflix and Twitter.

Who do you like to follow the most on Twitter, and why? I like following Ellen DeGeneres because she tweets classic jokes on Wednesdays that make me laugh.

At my first varsity practice, I felt … tiny. Everyone else was a lot taller than I was [and everyone still is taller than I am].

What do you work on most in the offseason? I’m usually working on whatever my coaches have told me my weaknesses are.

What is your most memorable moment as a high school athlete? My most memorable moments so far have been going to state in hockey and track. I also have many memories of doing fun things with my teammates; one of my fellow long jumpers and I do a dance before we jump in meets.

What are your goals for the 2014-2015 school year? I would love to be able to go to state in all three sports.

How do you balance school and sports during the year? Study hall has become my best friend in high school. It’s the only way I can get my work done and sleep at night.

In 10 years, I hope I’m … a forensic scientist on a criminal investigation team. That would be the coolest job.
