 What is it like to be a leader on the Ashwaubenon basketball team? “Being a leader can be challenging, but very rewarding. I try to lead more by example and give 100% in every drill, so hopefully younger kids see that and do the same. I also try to keep a positive attitude and encourage my teammates after a mistake. Being a leader makes me accountable and I take a lot of the responsibility for the success or struggles of the entire team.”


What is your most embarrassing moment ever in basketball? “Just a few weeks ago, I got fouled at the end of a half and I lined up to shoot free throws at the wrong basket. I stood there for awhile before I got a few weird looks and realized that it wasn’t our basket.”


How many years have you been involved in basketball? “I have been going to basketball camps since kindergarten and I began playing in league games when I was in 3rd grade. Basketball has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I have grown very close to my teammates and coaches. They are like a second family to me.”

What is your most memorable moment in basketball?
“My most memorable moment in basketball was playing in the Milwaukee tournament the past two summers. We stayed in a hotel, and it was great team bonding. We did a scavenger hunt both years. It was so much fun spending time with the team on and off the court for that weekend in July. I know that we will eventually forget about the wins and losses, but the memories we make off the court will last forever.”


What’s the hardest part about basketball? “The hardest part is definitely the fast pace of the game. There is no time to get upset about mistakes; you just have to forget about it and keep playing. I struggle with that, but I try to have a short-term memory and make up for errors on the other end of the court.”


If you could be somebody for a day, who would it be?  “I would want to be an NBA player for a day. It would be really cool to experience their lifestyle and see what daily life is like for the players. The game is so fast and everyone is so big. I think it would be fun to be a part of that for a day.”


What are your college aspirations? “I am planning to go to UW- Eau Claire to study and play basketball.”


What would your dream job be once you graduate? “I want to be a Physical Therapist. I think it would be very rewarding to help people rehab from injuries and return to their normal lives.”


What are your hobbies? “I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Additionally, I like the Milwaukee Bucks, playing sports, and watching Netflix.”


What is your favorite sporting event ever attended? “I have always been a Brewer fan, and last summer I got to go to Wrigley Field when the Brewers played the Cubs. Wrigley Field is one of the most iconic sports stadiums, and I have wanted to go see a game there. Wrigley lived up to its expectations and the Brewers won, so it was a very memorable game.”


What is your favorite type of music? “Country music is my favorite.”


What is your favorite thing to do on your phone? “Snapchat or Twitter”


What three words describe you? “Kind, hard-working, positive”

What is your favorite trip ever taken?  “My favorite trip ever taken is when I went to Hawaii last summer. It was so cool exploring the Island of Kauai. It is so beautiful. I really enjoy warm weather and relaxing on the beach. I love seeing new places, and I hope to continue travelling in the future.”

Comments on Megan Servais: “Megan has meant so much to our program both on and off the floor,” said Nicky VanLaanen, Head Basketball Coach. “She has been such a solid post player for us. I have never coached a better shot blocker in my twenty plus years of coaching. She is a great competitor and has a team first attitude. I have enjoyed coaching her and I will miss her very miss once the season ends.”
