"I think [my confidence is] staying the same because I know people on JV have the same potential as me...My dream is to go professional when I'm 19. I'm trying my best to do that and achieve that. My relationship [with my teammates] is pretty good. They're teaching me as much as they can, and I'm just learning."
"Yeah, I think my confidence has had a boost since I've been on the varsity team. My team is so super nice, they always help [me] when I make a mistake and tell me to keep my head up. What drives my to do better is my team, and it makes me want to do good, not for myself, but for other people on the team as well."
"Since this [is] my first year wrestling, I don't feel like I have had a boost in confidence. The team is very supportive when I need help, but there is also a pressure to be as good as the other older girl varsity players on the team, but overall my relationship with my team is very good. They drive me to be better at the sport."
