DURHAM, N.C.With NCAA Touranment action starting this weekend, senior midfielder Sarah Bullard recently answered a few questions for Read her answers below to learn more about the two-time All-American from Needham, Mass. What is the best thing about playing lacrosse at Duke?
Sarah Bullard: The Duke Lacrosse team has been my family over the past four years. I will miss everything about it—the competition, the daily pursuit of excellence and working towards a greater goal. But most of all I will miss my teammates, coaches and everyone involved in the program. I can’t even express how much they all mean to me. What is your favorite sport to watch on TV?
SB: Well, this is more specific to teams, but my favorites to watch are the New England Patriots and Duke Basketball. What is your favorite sport to play other than lacrosse?
SB: I love to play basically all other sports. I played soccer and ice hockey in high school and grew up playing tennis, so I’m a big fan of all of those. A lot of my teammates are really good basketball players, so sometimes I play with them, but they will all tell you I am HORRIBLE at it. It’s still fun though! Do you have any pre-game superstitions?
SB: I try not to be superstitious, but I definitely have some specific things that I like to do to feel good before games. When we play at home, Christie Kaestner and I always jam to a song in one of our cars after our pregame meal. Other than that, I like to just get to the locker room early and take my time getting ready and look at the scouting report. I like taking five minutes or so away from everyone to do some quiet meditation before the game to get focused, and then our team always has a pretty awesome pregame dance party that gets me going. I always walk up to the games with Emma Hamm, and then have some good handshakes with teammates. (That all sounds like a lot more than I thought!) What do you watch on TV?
SB: I’m not a huge TV watcher, but I do love to watch Glee. Also, I’ve gotten really into The Office recently and am somewhat obsessed with it. What do you have on your iPod?
SB: A really random mix of a lot of things! Motown and Stevie Wonder are my favorites since I grew up listening to that, but I also love everything from Maroon 5 to Mariah Carey, Lil’ Wayne and Glee! What would your dream job be?
SB: I’m a major idealist and definitely want to do something to help the world. I also love interacting with people, so a lot of things ranging from social entrepreneurship, microfinance, counseling, coaching and leadership development all interest me…I have a lot of paths to explore! Who would you trade places with for a day? Why?
SB: Right now I would say one of my professors, Tony Brown. This is my second semester in a row taking class with him, and he is doing a lot of great things to make Duke a better place. What was your first job?
SB: Working as a coach and intern for my high school club lacrosse team, REV. What was your first car?
SB: An awesome Volvo sedan that my friends in high school named Savannah.  She died last year and I really miss her. Who has had the biggest impact on your life and why?
SB: I honestly have been fortunate to have a lot of people who have made a big impact on my life.  First and foremost has been my parents, but I have also had a lot of coaches and teachers who have been instrumental in helping me be successful. Who is the best cook in your family?
SB: My Mom for dinner, my Dad for breakfast. : What is your favorite home-cooked meal?
SB: It’s not totally “home-cooked” per se, but this amazing chicken pot pie that we get from a local farm. It’s always my first request when I go home. What is your favorite snack?
SB: Probably pita chips and hummus. What is your favorite class at Duke?
SB: I’ve had a lot of classes that I’ve really loved. I took an independent study with LTC Mark Tribus on Leadership and Team Building during my sophomore year that was fantastic. I have also loved my MMS classes with George Grody and my Public Policy classes with Tony Brown that have been leadership oriented. What has been your toughest class at Duke?
SB: One of my toughest was the statistics class you have to take as a Sociology major. The class itself really isn’t that bad, but math is just not my strong suit.
