Greenwood, 16, a sophomore and resident of Shorewood, is in her second season on the Celtics varsity. She’s verbally committed to DePaul.
How are you liking this spring?
It’s not ideal. I mean, I really like to get outside and play. Friday it was snowing and I was like, “What is going on?”
What was it like being a freshman starting on a state-title-contending team?
It was hard at first. I felt pressure, batting in the No. 4 spot. But it’s what I love to do. And it doesn’t faze me anymore.
What opponent do you consider Providence’s biggest rival?
Everybody on our team has somebody they want to beat. My team would have to be Benet.
What opposing player would you love to have as a teammate?
Maeve McGuire, from Benet. Just the way she can hit the ball, and she’s an amazing center fielder. And she’s so fast on the bases.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I can play piano.
Your dream celebrity prom date. Who is it?
Channing Tatum. He has a lot of muscles.
Do you have any habits you wish you could break?
I really wish I could break the habit of doodling. When I go back and read my notes I’m like, “What was I thinking when I wrote these?”
What is your favorite thing to do other than play softball.
I like to spend time with my younger brother. Sometimes we play board games. Or we’ll play catch or ride bikes together.
What does Earth Week mean to you?
Being thankful for everything you have and preserving it. It means not being wasteful with water and conserving what you have.
