This round of Five Questions is with Quinn Vice. Quinn is a 6'0" 2025 Forward from Pleasant Valley HS (IA) & All Iowa Attack 2025 Nike Red. She is a Division I prospect. She was a top reserve for last years State Semifinalist team as a Freshman. Thanks for your time Quinn!

 

1) This season you played with All Iowa Attack 2025 Nike Red, one of the best teams in the region. What were some of your favorite games as well as some of your favorite memories with your teammates off the court?
 
I had a few games I will remember from this season.  One of my favorite games was when we played North Tartan in the championship during our last tournament in Des Moines. We’ve played this team before and they’re really good. Whenever we play each other it’s always super competitive and we have to be at our best.  We lost this game but as a team we played them better than we did before.  We distributed the ball well, we all had the mentality to score, and overall played good basketball.  My favorite memory this year was when we took a bus trip as a team to our first tournament in Minnesota. Before the tournament, some of our Attack teams got to watch the women’s NCAA final four at the Target Center. It was fun to hang out like that off the court. 
 
 
2) You have an older sister Halle, who will be a Senior this season, who's been through the recruiting process and will play at Marquette. What advice has she given you as you are now beginning to get into the process as a Division I recruit yourself?
 
I got to hear and see a lot while Halle was being recruited, which was really fun to watch.  She has told me to try not to get too overwhelmed with the whole process, be patient, and make sure the program is a fit for you.  
 
 
3) Last season you reached the State Tournament, but got knocked out in the State Semifinals. What goals do you have for yourself and your team as you head into your Sophomore season?
 
Being knocked out of the state semi finals has motivated my team and me for this upcoming season. Our team goals are to get back to state and play better than we did last year. We want to control the pace of the game, everyone being an offensive threat, as well as playing high pressure defense. Personally, I always want to improve my game no matter the situation. This year I want to continue to work on being a strong defensive player, and score more on offense.  I also want to keep being a great teammate who is encouraging and always bringing positive energy.
 
 
4) Besides your Home Court in Riverdale, whether with Pleasant Valley or All Iowa Attack, what are some of your favorite courts that you've gotten to play on?
 
When playing for All Iowa Attack, two of my favorite courts to play on were definitely in  Chicago at Nike TOC and HyVee Hall in Des Moines. I enjoyed playing on these courts because of the intense but fun atmosphere and environment.  In high school, my favorite court to play on was at Wells Fargo because of the fans and it was just special. 
 
 
5) You're a multi-sport athlete at Pleasant Valley. What do you think are some of the advantages of being a multi-sport athlete and are there any struggles at all when it comes to time
commitments?
 
Some advantages of being a multi-sport athlete is learning how to adapt to different coaching styles.  It’s also an advantage because I get to use some of the same skills from other sports to help me with my basketball. Also, being a multi sport athlete helps train different muscle groups so you don’t overtrain certain muscles and get hurt or injured. With every multi sport athlete there are struggles, one of them being time. I put in a lot of extra hours outside of my sport to improve.  Extra hours in the gym plus school work can be tough but all pays off in the end.
