FALCON FRIDAY: Q & A with Gabby Ligas

FALCON FRIDAY: Q & A with Gabby Ligas

Jeremy Zalacca - Director of Athletic Communications 

This week, we continue a new weekly feature entitled "Falcon Friday" which is a light-hearted Q & A session with various student-athletes of our 21 athletic programs that will be released every Friday throughout the 2017-18 athletic season. The feature is designed to get you to learn more about the individuals that make up our great athletic program.

In this week's installment of Falcon Friday, senior Gabrielle Ligas took some time out of her busy schedule to answer some questions. Gabby is a nursing major who has been a key contributor for the women's soccer program throughout her career. Her brother, Chandler, was a member of the men's soccer team from 2011-14. Please enjoy this Q & A session with one of the best student-athletes that Pfeiffer has to offer.
