Senior bios: Niles’ Ally Crites

Ally Crites is a senior on the Niles soccer team.

Activities: Cross country, basketball, FFA and National Honor Society.

Hobbies: Staying active, spending time with friends and famly and working with my animals.

My favorite soccer memory: I have so many memories, but the one that sticks out the most is when we beat the Eddies last year in the first round of districts.

Future plans: I will be attending Southwestern Michigan College in the fall to obtain my agriculture technology degree through Michigan State University, with hopes to one day teach agriculture.

Advice to underclassmen: My advice to underclassmen is to go into every practice and game with a positive attitude and play like it is the last time you could be playing soccer. Also, be sure to take the time to build friendships and make memories,

How have your been making the best of being quarantined?: Over quarantine I have worked a lot, but in my abudance of free time I have spent a lot of time going to new places and on adventures with the people I love.
