You might recognize Big Ten Medal of Honor finalist Nikki Walts from the women’s soccer team, but we asked her a few questions about summer, her hometown and ice cream.
What’s the better way to spend a summer afternoon: lounging at the swimming pool or hanging at an ice cream shop?
The best way would be hanging at the swimming pool eating ice cream.
Best ice cream flavor: vanilla, chocolate or swirl? (or something else)
What’s the first thing to do as soon as you’re finished with school for the semester?
I normally catch the first flight back to Arizona since I don’t get to spend a lot of time at home!
What’s the best vacation you’ve ever been on?
My family vacations in California a lot since it’s an easy drive and it’s always the best part of my summer. I’m a sucker for Disneyland!
Are you a fan of cookouts/barbecues? If so, what’s the best side dish?
The best cookout side dish or snack would have to be homemade French onion dip and Lays chips!
What’s your favorite sport to play (other than soccer)?
I would probably say tennis even though I’m not very good.
What is the weirdest thing about Ohio (since you’re from Arizona)?
The weather! It can be snowing one day, and two days later it’s 60 degrees and sunny!
