Athlete of the Week: 10 questions with Josie Noble, New Trier soccer

Josie Noble is a senior midfielder for the Trevians. Noble is committed to the Wake Forest University.

1. Do you have any pregame rituals or superstitions?

I definitely like to get a little candy in before a game, usually not chocolate, like SweeTarts or Nerds Clusters.

2. Why Wake Forest?

My sister (Lila, sophomore) goes to Elon (University), which is like 30 minutes away. When I checked out the school, I liked the campus, I loved people there, I loved the coaches. I was going to (early decision) there even without soccer.

3. What is your favorite thing to do off the field?

Off the field I love hanging out with friends. I actually love to bake, too. It’s my favorite thing — helps me relax. I’m not the best at it, but it’s fun to experiment.

4. If you could play another sport, what would it be?

I love watching tennis. I always wish I was good at it. I played on the sophomore team at New Trier, but it was a short career for me. I love tennis though.

5. What do you enjoy most about soccer?

For me it’s the team environment, the camaraderie. My teammates are like my family. I love that part of being on a team. Even on club, everyone is there to accomplish the same goal.

6. What is your top sports highlight so far?

I’ve definitely scored some fun goals this year. But I had one during a sectional game (sophomore year). We ended up losing, but it was to tie the game against Evanston. It hit the bar on the left side of the goal and went in.

7. What would be your dream job?

That’s kind of hard. I’d love to be a cook or chef at a top restaurant in New York or something like that.

8. If you’re in Walgreens with a couple of bucks, what are you buying?

I’m definitely buying some candy. Probably like a Kinder Joy egg. Those are the best.

9. What is something people don’t know about you?

This is a hard one. A lot of people think my last name is pronounced “No-bull,” but it’s actually “No-blay.” They are surprised when they find out. People don’t believe me when I say it.

10. What are you looking forward to this season?

Something that is really evident is we’re all kind of friends off the field, which is something that does’t happen a lot. We love being around each other, which is something that will contribute to our success. We are all focused on doing well this season. I just have big expectations for us.
