Q&A with Auburn Softball Senior Cami Fenn
February 12, 2003
A: My mother put me in softball when I was about 10 to keep me occupied. I started out playing slow pitch and I was the worst player on the team. I didn't even know where left field was, so when my coach asked me to go play left field I had to ask him where he wanted to me to go.
Q: What was the name of your first softball team?
A: I don't remember, but I played for Sandy Plains Park in Atlanta.
Q: Who has had the biggest impact on your life?
A: My mom. She is my number one fan and she has always been there for me and always will be. I know I can count on her.
Q: What brought you to Auburn?
A: I came for the Iron Bowl and I just fell in love with this place. I really liked the softball program here too, but in the end it all came down to I felt most at home here than in any other place.
Q: Of all the schools the team plays, which do you feel the biggest rivalry with?
A: Alabama for sure. They are the big Auburn rival in every sport, but I definitely feel the most tension with them. I like beating them.
Q: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
A: I hope to be married, though I don't have anyone lined up right now, with a family and a career. For my career I hope to be a marketing director for a baseball team or something like that.
Q: On one of your surveys you said your favorite thing to do is shake your tail feathers. Can you elaborate to me what you mean by that?
A: Basically it just means to go out and have a good time. I like to go dancing, hang with my friends and do whatever makes us laugh.
Q: What do you like best about playing softball for Auburn?
A: I like my teammates the best. I have made a lot of great friendships through these girls and that is what I will miss the most after I leave.
Q: What has been your most memorable moment at Auburn?
A: The first thing that comes to mind is the when we swept Alabama my sophomore year. I was hurt that year, so I was sitting in the stands, unable to play, but that victory still felt great and I will never forget it.
Q: If you were getting the chance to be in Space for a month, what three items would you take with you?
A: I would take my dog Doodle, my cell phone and a camera so I can show everyone what I saw.
Q: What motivates you to do your best?
A: My team motivates me to do my best. Knowing I have their support encourages me to work hard to succeed for them. The feeling I get personally from having done my best is extra motivation as well.
