TEN QUESTIONS WITH SITA MANOA
- Who/What got you interested in your sport and when did you start playing? I was 7 years old when my dad put my sisters and I in softball. I didn’t even know the sport, but I knew where I wanted to play after my first game in right field. I wanted an in-field spot, specifically the pitcher. So during the games I would be in the outfield motioning a pitch and all you could hear were the parents in the stands saying “Sita! Focus!” Since then, I’ve been hooked to softball.
- If you weren't playing your sport, what other sport would you want to play at the college level? I played volleyball and basketball, but I don’t think I would want to go further with those spots like I am with softball.
- What makes your coaches the type of coaches you love to play for? I am truly and forever grateful for my DVC coaches. I took a year off of softball and really had no confidence in my game. But playing for them made me feel invincible. They boosted my confidence and taught me so much more which made my game so much easier.
- What are you majoring in and what's your favorite class? I am majoring in Psychology and love the classes, but I love taking English classes too.
- What is your perfect pre-game meal? Before morning games: McDonalds Sausage McMuffin w/ Hash brown! Before afternoon games: 1/2 turkey sandwich w/ Fruit.
- What do you enjoy doing when you're not in school or playing your sport? Other than playing softball, I am usually with family or friends! But during my free time, I love to be creative, and spend money!
- Favorite Movies? She’s the Man
- What are your first three songs on your pre-game playlist? Beyonce- Freedom, John Splithoff- Sing To You, Beenie Man- Girls Dem Sugar.
- What is the plan once you graduate from DVC- Do you know where you are transferring? Will you be competing there? This fall I will be attending Benedictine University Mesa in Arizona where I will be playing in a Red hawk uniform.
- What is your leadership style? My leadership type is leading by example. Earning my team’s respect means more to me
