DURHAM, N.C. -- Recently, sat down with senior Rebecca Craigie to learn more about the Macclesfield, U.K., native. What are your favorite things about being a student-athlete at Duke?
Rebecca Craigie: I think the chance to travel to all these different places with the team. And to get to go with such a great group of people. What is your favorite competition-related memory?
RC: When I was a freshman, the DMR (distance medley relay) team made it to indoor nationals. That was really awesome for me to go and experience such a high level. A lot of the girls who went were older, so they gave me a lot of tips and encouragement. It was really awesome to be in that setting. What is your favorite memory away from competition?
RC: I would say our time at ZAP, which is where we went for preseason. The team just clicked better than ever. It was a really memorable few days and everyone had such a great time and got some really awesome training in. What do you want to accomplish in the next 10 years?
RC: I really don’t know what I want to do when I graduate, but I think the main thing is just making sure I’m doing something that I’m loving and enjoy doing every single day. Where would you travel to if you could go anywhere in the world?
RC: I love Switzerland and the Swiss Alps. I spent a lot of time there growing up and I would love to go back there. What are some of your favorite restaurants in Durham?
RC: I love Metro 8 and I also love Nana’s. Those are my two staples when my parents come visit. Describe Coach Kevin Jermyn in a couple of words.
RC: Wise and caring.
