Q&A With Senior Krystin Shanklin
Women's soccer player Krystin Shanklin is in her senior season at Air Force. The second-year team captain has helped lead the Falcons to a 3-1 record so far in 2011, currently ranking first in the Mountain West. She recently stopped for a chat with Cadet Second Class Sarah Christine Haas.
How excited are you about the team's 3-1 start this season?
Did you guys expect to get off to such a good start?
How important are the next three weeks for the team, as you play five-consecutive home matches during that time?
Have expectations for the team changed since your earlier years here?
How would you describe the personality of the team this year?
As a senior and second-year team captain, what have you and your fellow seniors tried to instill in the younger players on the team?
One huge thing the seniors on the team continually instill and show the younger players is to never give up. We are one of the hardest working teams in the country and never in a game or in practice will we give up.
When did you start playing soccer?
When did you decide to come to the Academy?
What is your favorite thing about being at the Air Force Academy?
As student-athlete that has also excelled in the classroom, how have you been able to juggle both duties as a cadet and athlete?
