Ever wondered what members of Deerfield’s athletic elite do before the big game? A few of our talented competitors revealed their routines.
Cross-country and rowing legend and rising rapper Ryan Heffernan ’12 said, “Two words: massage train.”
Victoria Serra ’12, who captains the varsity cross-country and track teams, has a distinct pre-game ritual for XC. “To prepare for the emotional battle that is cross country, I put up my hood and jam to 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, and Eminem… my boys.”
Mettler Growney ’13 confessed her typical field hockey, hockey, or lacrosse warm-up. “Before huge games in any sport, I make sure to get myself as angry as possible before the first whistle blows. I put on my headphones, listen to music like T-Swift…and envision myself absolutely destroying a girl on the opposing team.”
