The Auburn Villager: When did you start playing basketball?

Mary Mykal Prewett: Probably when I was 4 I started watching my dad and shooting and stuff. But I didn't really start until probably I was 10 and started rec league. And then I played travel till I could play in seventh grade. 

AV: What did you work on over the summer?

MMP: This summer, I just had to realize that I was going to be the point guard this year, so I just started playing more aggressively offensively and being able to be in the right spot all the time and being able to lead my team. I had to learn new skills. 

AV: Do you feel any added pressure now that you're the point guard?

MMP: Yeah, a little bit.

MMP: It's better because I'm leading my team. 

AV: What are the goals for the team this year? 

MMP: Our goal is to definitely make it all the way. I think we can definitely improve. We have really good potential this year. I just think we need to get better. 

AV: Are you going to play any other sports this year?

MMP: I'll do track this year. I was thinking about playing tennis, but I don't know if I'll have time or not. 

AV: Did you run track last year?

MMP: I did. 

AV: What events do you run in track?

MMP: I do the 800 and I do the triple-jump.
