Penn State Field Hockey Player Aurelia Meijer Gave the Best Interview Ever
Watching the joy in an athlete’s face after a big win is one of the best things about sports. This was on display last week after Penn State’s field hockey team took down Iowa, 3-2. All three goals were scored by freshman midfielder/forward Aurelia Meijer, including the game-winner as time expired.
Afterward, Meijer – a native of South Africa and the first international player in program history – did an interview with the Big Ten Network. Meijer had a smile on her face as she broke down each of her three goals in detail. She also talked about her brief time at Penn State, which led to the BTN announcer calling her “a breath of fresh air.”
