Katie Suits off the Pitch

Full Name: Katherine Suits

Nickname(s): SUITS!

I Chose Cal because...the academic/athletic combo is phenomenal! Once a Cal Bear, always a Cal Bear, right? I mean who wouldn't want to attend THE California school.

My favorite thing about the Bay Area is...that I don't have to worry about getting stared at for being myself. Although I'm a SoCal native, up north is the better half of California.

Something on my iPod that might surprise you... is "Pour some sugar on me" by Deff Leppard...but does that surprise you?

Most interesting thing I did this summer was...go to Alaska! I also saw the Counting Crows in concert

When I'm upset, I like to...take it out on my roommates.

I get mad when I miss this TV show: "The Poker World Series"

The best moment in sports history was when...when the U.S. national team beat the Russians in hockey.

Something I learned from my parents is...to love yourself and either "fight or flight."

Do you have any hidden talents? I'm a gifted dancer.

What is one thing about your hometown that you miss? The beach

Which words or phrases do you overuse? Do you mean my insightful and inspiring words of wisdom that my teammates live by? In that case, none.

The Gold Standard
