4. What are you most looking forward to about UniSport Nationals?
Meaghan: I am looking forward to having the chance to compete against universities nation wide in the sport that I love, whilst representing the mighty CSU! I am also very excited to meet new people and be able to catch up with friends from previous games.

6. What is the message you want to give the team as the CSU team captains?
Meghan: I want the CSU team to take pride in wearing the red and white! I also want each athlete to be relentless on the field and remember that not everyone is given the opportunity to compete at a national tournament. Team CSU is bringing home the gold!
