The Flat Hat caught up with junior Lauren Sabacinski, who after a successful 13-3 sophomore season two years ago, is back with the Tribe this year after an ACL injury prevented her from competing last season.

Pump-up music:

I have a whole playlist that I go through before matches. If I had to choose one song, it would be “Bleed It Out” by Linkin Park.

Comedian on the team:

Carmen [Pop, senior]. She is just goofy all the time. She mixes up sayings. Instead of saying “Whatever floats your boat,” she says “Whatever makes your boat float.”

Favorite TV show:

I love 24. I’ve seen every season except the third or fourth one. I’m not sure.

Favorite event at the College:

The thing with the fireworks. [FH: The illumination?] Yes! I love the fireworks and it’s near Christmas so it makes me happy.

Memorable collegiate victory:

Beating (no. 82) Katie Potts of Notre Dame my sophomore year at ITAs [National Indoor Championships]. She was the highest-ranked person I’ve beaten, and I happened to have the flu, bronchitis and an ear infection during that match.
