Sheridan is completing her Master's at Arizona State University. Below, Sheridan reminisces on her time as a Sun Devil and her future plans. Sheridan will graduate with a Master of Sports Law and Business in 2024.
Talk about your experience playing hockey at ASU.
S: From the time I started at asu to now, I have grown so much not only a player but a person as well. Being a part of this team has taught me so many life skills and has allowed me to make lifelong friendships. I will be forever grateful for having the opportunity to be a part of this team!
What is your favorite thing about playing hockey at ASU?
S: Two of my favorite things about playing hockey at ASU are the culture and being a part of growing and building the program. Our team culture is something I am so proud to be a part of. We have high expectations for ourselves and our teammates and push each other to be our best everyday. From my freshman year to now, we have hit so many milestones for the program and I’m sure we will continue to do so.
What is your favorite hockey memory from ASU?
S: There are so many great memories over the past five years, but I am going to have to say that it felt pretty amazing sweeping CU this year after our last encounter with them at playoffs. You could just feel that we wanted it more than them and we were playing our game.
What legacy do you hope to leave behind for ASU Women's Hockey?
S: When I joined this team, one of our top goals was to beat GCU every time we played them, and instead of a goal, that turned into an expectation. One of our goals for this season is to make it to the National Championship, and I believe that we will. The legacy that I would like to leave is not only making it to the national championship, but having that be the expectation for years to come.
Any advice for younger players or players looking to play at ASU?
S: Some advice that I was given by a female professional athlete as a child was “dream big,” and I would like to pass along the same message to young girls wanting to play here. No dream is out of reach if you put in the work!
What is your plan after graduation?
S: After this year I am going to be finishing up my masters program.
From Sheridan, "I want to thank my mom and dad for making it possible for me to have made it this far playing hockey. They have worked so hard to make sure I was able to follow my dreams of playing college hockey. Also, shoutout to my brother, Austin for being the reason I wanted to start playing hockey in the first place.
I would also like to thank Coach Lindsey and the rest of the coaching staff for developing me as a player and a person. I appreciate everything they have done for me over the years. Lastly, I would like the thank Matt Shott for being such an amazing mentor and helping me every step of the way with my hockey and coaching careers."
