If you could describe yourself in four “hashtags” what would they be? “#Fierce #Fast #Intense #TinyButMighty”
If you were told you had to live the rest of your life as an animal what animal would you be and why? “A lion because they are super fierce, beautiful creatures that don’t give up the fight and the Lion King is my favorite movie.”
“Sofia Naumovski is an amazing competitor. She works hard in practice, plays as much as she can, and takes every goal personally. I expect a lot from her, and I believe she expects even more from herself. She has been my goaltender since her freshman year and she will lead the team as a senior. She is representing El Dorado through the national team and we are excited and very proud.” – Coach Patrick O’Donnell
