Sammie Delzotto

Senior guard Sammie Delzotto has helped the Wildcats girls' basketball team win eight of its first 10 games. She is averaging more than 11 points per game. Here is a closer look at Delzotto:

The best movie I've seen in the past year is ... "Pitch Perfect." It is my favorite movie of all time.

Three songs I never skip on my iPod ... "Titanium" by David Guetta; "Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus; "Right by My Side" by Nicki Minaj.

What are your three favorite apps? Twitter, Instagram, Wanelo.

Who do you like to follow the most on Twitter, and why? I love following @CuteEmergency because they tweet pictures of little cute animals, and they always make me smile when I see them!

Three words or phrases my friends or teammates might use to describe me? Energetic, leader, funny.

At my first varsity practice, I felt ... nervous because I was the youngest. But that didn't last for long because my team made me feel welcome from the start.

What is your most memorable moment as a high school athlete so far? Beating Bloomington Kennedy 73-72 my junior year on a buzzer-beater shot by one of my teammates. They were one of the top teams in the state, so it was one of the most exciting games I have ever been a part of.

How do you balance school and sports during the year? I try and focus really well in the classroom, so that when I do have homework I understand it so that way I can get it done much faster.

In 10 years, I hope I'm ... a physical therapist for a professional sports team.
