Every once in a while, student assistant Sebastian Pettitt dives deep into the minds of Husky student-athletes with some very important questions, in order to learn more about the people that are seen on the playing surface. Ahead of a busy month of February for the Husky Women's Indoor Track & Field team, Sebastian sat down with Katie Ferrara. A sophomore, Katie takes part in both Pole Vault & Hurdles, and will look to help the Huskies win their 18th LEC Championship in a row.

If you opened the freezer and you found a penguin, what would you do?
"A penguin?!" "Oh my god, I would give it a big hug… and feed it! That's so exciting, I'd be so happy."
What would you feed it?
Well, if it could talk I would ask it what it wants. If not, I don't know what they eat, I've never done penguin research… I would just find different things until it found something it likes.
If you could live inside the world of one TV show or movie, which one and why?
I guess Finding Nemo. I just wanna live in the sea, that seems cool. Pretty easy too, just swimmin' around, having a good time.
If you were forced to audition for American Idol, what song would you sing?
Rockstar by Nickelback.
If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have the best chance at bringing home the gold in?
I can make really good Mac & Cheese. Kiley (Boerger) told me I'm the noodlemaster.
If you were stranded on an island and could only bring three things with you, what items are you bringing?
Definitely Angie (Dubois), Chicken, and probably a digital clock so I know what time it is. Can batteries be part of the clock? Also the clock has to play music.
If you could be backstage at one concert who would be performing?
Probably Papa Roach, that would be a ton of fun.
Most random thought you've ever had mid-air during pole vault?
Yesterday during one of my jumps, I kinda went off to the side and thought "Huh, I could really hurt myself." And that was it.
If I asked your teammates what your secret talent was, what would they say?
I think sometimes I can read people's minds. But, by people I mean Angie.
What color are you in the giant box of Crayola crayons?
**spends ten minutes looking through list of retired crayola colors**
It would definitely be a purple or blue. I also like Piggy Pink!!
**starts making pig noises while admiring the color**
What is one game that you think you might be unbeatable in?
Probably Uno, but I'm pretty good at go fish too.
