A Q&A with Forest Park alum Lanette Blume who will be playing basketball collegiately at Hanover College.

What was the biggest factor into your decision to play sports collegiately? The biggest thing I was dealing with was deciding if I wanted to devote that much time into sports in college instead of focusing on my education.

What stood out about Hanover College and what made you choose that school over others you visited? Hanover really stood out to me because they stressed the importance of academcis and how they put that above athletics. I also really liked Hanover for their welcoming atmosphere they created for me during all my visits.

During your time at Forest Park, who or what do you feel most prepared you for playing sports in college? I feel as though all of my past coaches helped in some way to prepare me for collegiate ball. However, I believe Coach (Tony) Hasenour has prepared me the most throughout my time with him. He pushed me every day to be the best that I could be and he saw my potential before I did.

What was your biggest accomplishment during your time at Forest Park?
