Athlete of the Week: Annie Bullock

Feature Q&A with Annie Bullock

What is your favorite pro sports team? I have grown up watching the Broncos, so I would say the Broncos are my favorite.

What is your favorite college sports team? That depends on what sport I am watching but I would say the Hawkeyes.

Who is your favorite athlete? I do not have a favorite athlete.

Do you have a pet? I do. I have a Goldendoodle. Her name is Jovie.

Do you have a nickname? My family, like my grand­parents, aunts, etc., call me Bananie or Banana, and my friends or others call me Anne or Annabelle.

What is your preferred method of social media? I use Snapchat the most.

People would be surprised to know that you? A lot of people don’t know that I sing. I am self-taught on guitar, piano and ukulele. Singing and playing these instruments are usu­ally something I do in my alone time, but I am on the praise team for church.

Which of your teammates is most intense? I would say Lizzie Van Es. She knows the game very well and is good on her feet so she keeps everyone moving and keeps it intense.

Which of your teammates makes you laugh? Either Sydney Gesink, Lainey Pomrenke or Keanna Post. These three girls can make you laugh within seconds.

What do you do on a long bus ride? We usually have a huge speaker so we jam out and socialize with each other.

What is your pregame ritual? The team gets pumped up at best as we can, keeping things at an intense level during warm-ups. But we all just really try to have fun.

What is your favorite part of sports? I love playing the sports I am in general, but being around your teammates, getting to know them and making memories is probably the best part.

What is your favorite sports memory? Being involved in multiple sports allows me to make so many memories. Whether it’s making history and going to state softball for the first time, or taking first place in hip-hop at state dance or even dancing in the commons during a soccer team building . . . there are tons of amazing memories.
