Gianna Palli ’23.5, a member of the women’s basketball squad, is featured on the podcast this week. In this episode, we ask Gianna about the pandemic’s effect on the women’s basketball season. What has the team been doing to stay in shape this fall? What’s the best-case scenario for this semester? What might the winter season look like? Also, we talk about her first season in the Panther uniform which came to a grinding halt after six games due to an injury. We discuss this injury and her decision to take a gap semester and save a year of eligibility. Finally, we end the episode by exploring her athletic upbringing, her college recruitment process and the goals she has set for herself at Middlebury.
