BERKELEY - During the off-season the Golden Bears added six new faces to the field hockey squad. CalBears.com asked each a few questions to get to know each player a little bit better. Each Q and A will be published over the next two weeks. First up is Kristen Lee, 5-11 defender from Los Angeles, Calif.
CalBears.com: Do you have any nicknames?
Kristen Lee: In high school people would sometimes call me "Kri" or "KriLee". I also get "Little Lee" a lot because of my older sister Stacy, who is still a part of the team.
CalBears.com: What has surprised you most about college?
KL: How everyone is very nice and welcoming.
CalBears.com: Where is your favorite spot on campus?
KL: The Big C has such a nice view!
CalBears.com: What made you come to Cal?
KL: I'm such a California girl, but even beyond that, the team has always felt like family and I couldn't imagine being with any other group of girls.
CalBears.com: When are you happiest?
KL: When I can curl up in bed with a bowl of popcorn and watch a movie.
CalBears.com: What is on your iPod right now?
KL: Childish Gambino is always on.
CalBears.com: What is your favorite holiday? Why?
KL:Christmas because during all of December people are in such a festive mood. Also, because I love waking up to a white Christmas in Colorado and having the whole day to be cozy on the couch and spend time with my family.
CalBears.com: Who is the funniest player on the team?
KL: Everyone is really funny in their own way. But Andrea Earle never fails to make me laugh.
CalBears.com: If you were a superhero, what would your name be and what powers would you have?
KL: I love the nickname KriLee so I could use that as my superhero name. I'd want to fly or be able to read people's minds.
