VILLANOVA, Pa. - As part of Senior Week leading up to the Wildcats' final home game against No. 14 Louisville on Sunday, each of the seniors sat down to answer some questions and let Nova Nation know more about them.
Goalkeeper Julia Todd joined the Wildcats field hockey team earlier this month, but she played a great game in a triple-overtime loss to Rutgers. A member of the women's lacrosse team for the past three years, Julia joined field hockey when the team needed her, showing her commitment to Nova Nation.
Q: Why did you choose Villanova?
Julia: The opportunity to play Division I. The academics, of course - the business school is really well known.
Q: What's your favorite restaurant in Villanova?
Julia: Gullifty's or Kelly's.
Q: What are you planning on doing after Villanova?
Julia: Hopefully getting a job, fingers crossed, in marketing or advertising.
Q: Who is your favorite athlete?
Julia: I'm a huge Patriots fan, so Tom Brady.
Q: What is your favorite food?
Q: What is your favorite animal?
Julia: My dog. He's an English bulldog named Goose.
Q: What's the last movie you watched?
Julia: I watched The Call with one of my roommates. It was actually pretty scary.
Q: What do you like to do outside of field hockey?
Julia: I play lacrosse, but outside of that, I just like to hang out with my friends, read - normal stuff.
Q: If you could play another sport at Villanova, what would it be?
Julia: I would say volleyball. But I don't think I'd be very good at it.
Q: If you could be a contestant on any game/reality show, which would you pick?
Julia: Probably Survivor or The Amazing Race.
Q: If you could switch places with any of your teammates, who would it be?
Julia: On the field, I'd probably want to be Keira [Zambon]. She's a midfielder, so she gets to see everything and be everywhere on the field.
Q: What is your pregame routine?
Julia: I usually listen to the audio from Any Given Sunday. It's a great speech.
Q: What's the best thing about being a Villanova athlete?
Julia: The family of this whole athletic department. This experience, being able to play two sports, is the epitome of it. I was welcome so quickly by the field hockey team - it was like being with the lacrosse team. We're all one big family.
Q: What is your greatest strength on the field?
Julia: Probably my commitment and my communication. I'm pretty loud, usually.
