TAKE FIVE Amanda Lund, Pine Island senior

TAKE FIVE Amanda Lund, Pine Island senior teen beat p Q: What's sports do you do and which is your favorite?

A: Volleyball, gymnastics and track. Volleyball because that's the one I excel most in. I've always loved it. That's the one that's more team oriented, and I like that better. Track and gymnastics are teams too, but they're more focused on your individual performance.

Q: What is small town life like?

A: It's cool to live in a small town because that way you know everybody so it's more close knit. But then again it does have its bad side because everyone does know everyone and if you happen to do something bad ...

Q: What's something you must take to college.


A: Photo albums of my friends because I'm going to miss them a lot.

Q: What's the worst cafeteria food, and best.

A: I like all the food. The Nachos Supreme are good, but they don't have it that much.

Q: What sport to you wish you could play?

A: To play football or wrestle would be cool.

Q: How did you choose your three sports?

A: Gymnastics I had been doing since I was 2 or 3 years old. Volleyball -- I fell in love with it the minute I tried it. I did softball 7th, 8th and 9th grade and then I switched over track because I thought it would help me with volleyball. It builds up a lot of endurance. I wanted to try track and see how I would do.
