At what age did you start playing your sport? Age 24. I run because it's extremely fun.
What is your fondest memory of your sport? Beating Bill Corcoran’s time in a 600m race (it was not a bet, there was no money involved, and I do not endorse gambling). Also, Rick Scott jumping into ice-cold Lake Superior.
Any pre or post-game rituals that you would be willing to share? How do you prepare? Not really.
What are your future goals? To complete my never-ending degree.
From Head Coach Bill Corcoran:
Any special track moments, stats you’d like to share? Maria hit a career-best with the Wolves and finished 8th place at the ACAC Championships. She has also had three appearances at CCAA Cross Country Nationals. She raced in 2015, 2016 and 2018.
What does this player bring to the dynamics of the team? Maria brings maturity to the team. She does an excellent job balancing academics, athletics and motherhood, which is definitely an inspiration to all of us.
