Pam and Anne: How did you guys get started with lacrosse, and how many years have you been playing.
Campbell: I’ve been playing since third grade. I started playing because my mom played at UVA, my uncle played at UVA, my cousin played at UNC. It’s our family sport, I was kinda bred into it.
Zoe: I started playing in third grade too. Lacrosse was definitely not big in Georgia back then. My dad played at Duke and loved it. He started a program a Georgia, so I played through that.
Pam and Anne: What has been your biggest accomplishment? It can be with lacrosse, school, and life.

Pam and Anne: Did you guys play any other sports in high school?
Campbell: I played field hockey and was on swim team.
Zoe: I played basketball and volleyball.
Pam and Anne: Do you have a saying or a motto you live by?
Campbell: It is a line from a poem that’s been passed through my family. “She started to sing as she tackled the thing that couldn’t be done and she did it” It’s very motivational and means a lot to me.

Pam and Anne: Cool, any particular reason why?
Campbell: Well, we both don’t have chins, and my favorite show is SNL
Pam and Anne: That’s an original one!

Zoe: Yeah, sleep!
Pam and Anne: Random Fact
Zoe: I have a freckle on my eye.
Campbell: I was stranded on an Island once.
Pam and Anne: How did that happen?
Campbell: I was in Puerto Rico with my family and there was a mile long strip of random land, so me and cousins kayaked over, but then when we were on the Island there was a big storm so we couldn’t get back. I can do the cup dance from Pitch Perfect.

Pam and Anne: What’s the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?
Campbell: You know the soda streams, where you fill up a bottle with regular water and you carbonate it? Well, you’re not supposed to put the mix in with the water when you carbonate but I did, and it exploded all over our kitchen.
Pam and Anne: What are three things you can’t live without?
Campbell: My phone, my dogs, and my car
