[Oredigger] What is it like to go from the bench to a starting role?
[Hutchison] It’s definitely a privilege; to have that first year of taking it all in, and then to now to feel like you are a contributor.
What is your favorite part about being a student athlete?
Just the whole support from the city of Golden and the school. It makes it almost like a high school atmosphere.

What is your least favorite part about being a student athlete?
I mean, the academics are hard, but that’s why I’m here. I love being here
What is your least favorite class?
[Almost before I finished the question.] Physics. It’s definitely not my thing. (smiles)
How is college play different from high school?
The team spirit is very similar, but the game is a lot faster and a lot more technical. A lot more strategy goes into each play.
How did you transition?
That is basically what freshman year was for, for me. I got to learn under two seniors last year. It was a great opportunity.
What is your schedule like?
In season, we go until 7:00 [PM] and homework is after that. You learn how to manage your time.
Where does the team hope to be at the end of the season?
Definitely to get a good seeding in the tournament. Last year we were seeded pretty low and had to play [Concordia-St. Paul].
What are some of the biggest games this season?
Nebraska-Kearney. That is always a big game and definitely a rivalry. We also have tough games against Metro State and Regis, but the entire RMAC is getting a lot stronger.
Did you have a sports hero you looked up to?
Mia Hamm, actually. I played soccer when I was little and she was my favorite.
