Player Spotlight with Carrie Logie

With the conclusion of the 2015 campaign, continues its player spotlight with this week's feature, Carrie Logie.

Logie is a junior forward for the Lady Flames, having competed in 19 career contests.

Who introduced you to field hockey?
Logie: I started playing field hockey the summer before I started sixth grade. I had played soccer all my life up to that point, and was devastated after I got cut from the local travel team.  A few weeks later, a friend of mine told me about a field hockey clinic that was being held at my school. Neither of us had ever played before, but we decided to sign up and give it a try. Right from the get-go, I found field hockey incredibly fun and wanted to keep playing!

Tell me about your family. What do your parents, or guardians, do? How many brothers or sisters do you have and what do they do?
Logie: My parents are Allan and Dene' Logie. My dad does ambulance billing for a company called EMS Billing and Consultants. My mom is a licensed real estate agent, and is currently working as a secretary for my granddaddy's rental home business. My sister, Sarah, is a senior in high school, and will be coming to Liberty next fall which I am extremely excited about! She enjoys listening to music, drinking coffee, and playing the guitar (a new hobby she has taken up this past summer). 

If you weren't playing field hockey which sport would you enjoy playing?
Logie: My high school started a lacrosse program my sophomore year, and I absolutely loved it!  The team was new and we didn't even know all the rules going into the first couple of games, but we were able to grow and improve so much in the three seasons I was there. It was a blast, and I have missed playing since graduating.

Tell us your recruiting story on how you got to Liberty.
Logie: I had visited Liberty my sophomore year of high school, and fell in love with it instantly. I knew that I wanted to play field hockey in college, and the fact that Liberty's field hockey program had just been announced only increased my interest. I had been on campus a few times for different visits, clinics, and the summer camp hosted by Liberty. After a camp the summer before my senior year, I returned home discouraged, believing that I had not accomplished the job. There was another school I had talked with who was asking for a commitment decision quickly, which heightened the stakes. Within the next two weeks and a few email exchanges back and forth with Coach, I continued to pray over it, asking that if it was in His will, I would have the opportunity to play at Liberty. I knew that being on this team was put on my heart for a reason, and that I would have to trust God to provide the opportunity.  Through His perfect timing, I got a call from Coach. He showed His faithfulness throughout the entire process, and I couldn't be more thankful for the fact that He has brought me here. 

If you could get away from field hockey for a little bit, what would you enjoy doing?
Logie: Some things I really enjoy doing when I'm not at field hockey are running, going on walks and talking with friends, and mostly just spending time with people! This summer I spent a lot of time traveling around to visit friends and different places, which was a really great time!

What are you studying, and what do you enjoy about that?
Logie: I am studying psychology and also working on a minor in business. I like psychology because I think that people are fascinating – the way in which we think and behave in any given situation has always interested me. I am currently taking a class on abnormal psychology, which I have thoroughly enjoyed as we have learned about different disorders, along with different treatment strategies. 

Any connections to famous athletes or influential people around the country?
Logie: No famous athletes, but after my freshman year of high school a group of my friends caravanned over to Nashville, Tenn., to meet Taylor Swift! 

Who were your heroes growing up, and who did you emulate in the backyard or playground?
Logie: My heroes growing up would definitely have to be my grandparents. They have always been a huge part of my life. They rarely missed a game when I played in high school, and are always traveling to see Liberty field hockey play. I have fond memories of watching my grandma play tennis with her friends every Monday night, and I would be the ball girl. Likewise, I've always seen my granddaddy as someone who is capable of anything. They live on a farm and we used to do all sorts of fun things like riding horses, building fires to cook food, riding around in the pickup truck, and playing in the creek. They mean the world to me and I can't wait to be home over break so I can spend time with them.

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Does your family have any fun traditions for the holidays?
Logie: Over Thanksgiving, my family always goes to my grandparents' house for a huge dinner my grandma makes. When my sister and I were little we used to dress up as Pilgrims and Indians, which has provided some pretty humorous photos from Thanksgivings past. These days, I usually wake up on Thanksgiving morning and run in the Turkey Strut 5K which is a lot of fun!

If you could have any one superpower, what would that superpower be?
Logie: I would want my superpower to be teleportation. It would be so cool to be able to move from place to place instantaneously without travel time or having to pay transportation cost.
