MAX KASSAN: What is your major, and what influenced you to pursue it?

BRIANA NARZIKUL: I am a double major in Psychology and Economics because I am interested in business and entrepreneurship.

MK: What is your favorite Swarthmore athletics memory?

BN: My favorite Swarthmore athletics memory would probably be a tie between beating McDaniel this past weekend on Senior Day and beating Muhlenberg my freshman year in double overtime.

MK: What was going through your mind when you were honored during Senior Day?

BN: I was thinking a lot about how fast four years have gone by. It really feels like not too long ago I was playing my first game here at Swat.

MK: How did being the only senior affect how you carried yourself this season?

BN: It is definitely a unique situation; I just focused on trying to set a good example for my younger teammates.

MK: Do you plan to continue playing lacrosse after you graduate?

BN: Probably not competitively, but I can’t see myself totally stepping away from the sport. I may consider coaching at some point.
