Members of the varsity basketball team watch the Senior Night video they made for Elizabeth Moss ’24.

Varsity basketball senior, Elizabeth “Emmy” Moss ’24, suited up for her senior game last month, after playing for Carrollton for 7 years. The Carrollton Cyclones defeated the Terra Environmental Research Institute 47-15. After the game, Moss sat down for an interview to reflect on her journey as a player. 

The following interview has been edited and condensed for clarity. 

Why did you start playing basketball? 

My sister started playing, so my parents made me play too. It wasn’t a personal choice, but I ended up liking it!

What was playing your senior game like?

It was a little scary, but overall it was a fun and exciting experience.

What lessons did you learn from this basketball team that you will apply to your future? 

The people you surround yourself with are the most important aspect of your life.

What is your favorite part of being on the basketball team? What are you going to miss the most?

My teammates. They are my second family. 

Did you have any mental setbacks in basketball. If so, how did you overcome them?

I always get nervous before games, but having my teammates reassuring me is always helpful.  

What would you tell your freshman self?

Don’t be scared, and you’ll eventually make friends.
