The VCU field hockey team had one of its most successful season's in school history. The Rams had only two seniors, so the future for Rams' field hockey is very bright. One of those bright young stars is Haley McBee, who provided valuable depth for the Rams all season.
McBee recently sat down with VCU Athletic Communication Student Assistant Andrew Phillips to see what keeps her going off of the turf.
AP Why did you decide to come to VCU?
HM: I came on my official visit and absolutely fell in love with the coaching staff, players, and the vision both had for the program. I knew that I was going to grow as a player, and be part of a great team.
AP: What does mean to you, to be a part of bringing VCU field hockey back to dominance?
HM: I feel honored every day to be a part of a program that has risen to such great heights, and has overcome various obstacles. Everyone that's a part of the team gives their all day in and day out, and I'm so happy that the collegiate community has been able to see all our hard work turn into success.
AP: What would you buy if you won the lottery?
HM: My Range Rover sitting on some big rims, blacked out.
AP: What other VCU sports team would you play on if you were not a member of the field hockey team?
HM: I started out as a soccer player before converting to field hockey, so I'd have to go with women's soccer.

HM: If she was still living, Audrey Hepburn!

HM: A Great Dane puppy!
AP: If you could have dinner with any three people who would they be, and why?

AP: Who is a better field hockey player Coach McQuade or Coach Karl?
HM: Ouch! I honestly can't take sides here; both are amazingly gifted field hockey players!
