Selena Stromer ’18 is entering her final season of St. Norbert hockey this year. Stromer ’18 has played 68 non-exhibition games in her first three seasons with St. Norbert and has been selected as a captain for this season. Stromer took time to reflect on her time at SNC, on and off the ice.
What is your major/minor?: I am a business finance major.
You are entering your last season of hockey here. How does that feel?: It feels surreal. I don’t think that it’s fully set in that after this year I don’t get to come back and play anymore, so it’s kind of sad to think about. Coming in as a freshman, senior year seemed like a lifetime away and now that it’s here, I can’t believe how fast the time went.
What is your favorite part of being a captain?: I like the learning experience you get as a captain. It teaches you how to grow into a leader and how to manage the responsibility that comes with the role. Being a captain isn’t always easy, but I think the challenge of it is what makes being a captain a rewarding position.
What is your most memorable achievement?: The first thing that comes to mind is when we beat Lake Forest my sophomore year to advance to the conference championship. It all came down to this series and we hadn’t beat them all year, but 18 seconds into the first period we scored and carried that momentum for the rest of the game to win it. It was certainly one of the highlights of my college career since they’re a huge rival for us.
What is your goal for this season?: My goal this season is to grow as a person and a leader both on and off the ice. This being my last hockey season, I want to make sure I’m capitalizing on all the opportunities given to me and doing everything I can to make myself better. I also want to support my teammates in any way I can to help them reach their goals as well as the team’s.
