Globe Correspondent Braden Campbell talked to Moira Cronin, a member of Andover's track and field team who has earned all-scholastic honors last year. He asked her a few good questions.
What's your greatest moment doing track?Cronin: "I would say winning New England's, because that was when I first cleared 5'9" [in the high jump]. I was on cloud nine."
Is there a song you use to get pumped up?
Cronin: "I have a playlist. I'm not like a big music person, but there's a song from Radio City, I forget which one. There's a song from The Format. Any of those songs."
What's the one food you can't live without?
Cronin: "Before every meet I try to have a burger. At our pasta dinner last night I kinda pigged out."
What's a ritual or superstition your team has?
Cronin: "After every jump, my teammate Jess Salley, we do this high-five. I think that's part of our ritual, keeping the same thing every time.
If you were stuck on a desert island with only one person who would it be and why?
Cronin: "I'd probably say my best friend Jill Pengeroth because she's just hilarious and we always have a good time."
