My name’s Lizzy, and I play Division III ice hockey at SUNY Plattsburgh. Over the last 2 and a half years, I’ve been lucky enough to win 2 national championships. As amazing of an experience it has been, it hasn’t come without its trials and tribulations. Being a student athlete can be challenging. From the early morning workouts, to tough practices, finishing your homework or trying to studying for that big test, all the while barely having a minute to yourself…There’s a lot that NARPS (non-athletic regular people) don’t know about. Which is why I’m here to provide a little insight, as well as supply some helpful tips for the every day student athlete.
