PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Meet The Friars - Part 11 returns to Friars.com with Deidra Clymer. Known as "D" by her teammates, Deidra recently completed her second year at Providence College and served as the team's reserve goalkeeper. After taking a red-shirt season as a freshman in 2011, Deidra played three games in 2012. She earned her first collegiate victory on September 3 against Kent State with a season-high five saves.
Deidra is from South Windsor, Conn. and attended South Windsor High School. During her career with the Friars, she also has excelled in the classroom, earning NFHCA National Academic Squad and BIG EAST Academic All-Star honors. She also has spent the last two summers on the U.S. High Performance New England Training Squad.
Let's meet Deidra Clymer!
1. Why did you decide to attend to Providence College?
I decided to come to Providence because I fell in love with the campus. I always would come to Futures Regional tryouts here at PC, and the campus just seemed so pretty to me. I was also looking for a smaller school that still had a top field hockey program.
2. What was the best book you read this past year, and why?
The best books that I have read this past year are A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin - more commonly known as Game of Thrones. They were really good because they have the perfect mix of action, romance and sci-fi and they keep you on your toes. You never know what is coming next!
3. If you were a musical instrument, what would you be? Why?
If I were a musical instrument I would be a piano. A piano is a lot more complicated than it appears at first glance. It isn't just the keys and the pedals but there are the hammers and strings hidden beneath the lid. I feel like this is similar to me because when people first meet me, I tend to be very quiet and shy. It isn't until you get to know me that I really open up revealing the whole picture of who I really am.
4. If you could play any other position on the field hockey field, what would it be? Why?
I would like to be a forward if I were to play another position on the field hockey field, because for once I would like to know how it feels to be on the other side of a goal being scored.
