A Day in the Life of Sabrina Quarles

One of the most often asked questions that someone asks our athletes when they visit DSU is,"What does a typical day look like for you?" One of our players sat down with me to answer this question for all of our viewers. Sabrina Quarles is a sophomore outfielder from Artesia, California. She is a Mass Communications major with a concentration in Journalism. She is also minoring in Textiles and Apparel with the intent of becoming a Fashion Journalist one day.

Here is a typical Wednesday for Sabrina:

5:15am- Wake Up
6:00-6:30am: Conditioning
6:30-7:45am: Team Hitting
8:00am: Breakfast at Starbucks
9:00-9:50am: African American Music 
10:00-10:50am: Apparel Construction 2
12:00pm: Lunch at the Cafe
2:00-2:50pm: Introduction to Art
4:00-5:30pm: Team Defense
7:00pm: Dinner
8:00-9:30pm: Study
9:00pm: Drink tea
9:30pm: Go to bed

This wraps up the day for Sabrina. Wednesdays are her busiest days. Thursdays, however,  she has only one class in the morning and the whole afternoon to herself. This allows her to do homework, nap, or have some down time with her friends. Here is a short interview we did about her schedule and activities she likes to do outside of softball.

Favorite class? Reporting and writing because it focuses on my major and it is something I am really interested in. We do mock journals as if we were the journalist covering a story.

What do you do in African American Music?- We learn about a different culture of music. It is a very hands-on class. We learned to play the drums.

What is Apparel Construction 2? I learn how to create garments. I have to cut the pieces out, sew them together, and fit them on a mannequin. Our final project is going to be designing a 3-piece outfit.

Currently Sabrina is adding a pocket onto a pair of pants.
What are some of your weekly hobbies? Playing with the adoption dogs at PetsMart, trying different restaurants, and baking in the dorm toaster oven.

What is a piece of advice you would give to incoming student athletes? Have an open mind. Some majors require classes that you do not think are relevant, but it puts you out of your comfort zone and it could be fun. Also, make sure you don't put too much on your plate at once. DSU offers a lot of resources to help you with schooling and managing your time, but you have to take advantage of it.

Coming to college as an athlete can look overwhelming and scary, but if you manage your time correctly you will be able to fit everything into your day. Sabrina has found a schedule that allows her to complete all of her school work, attend practice and class, have time for friends, and even go to bed at the same time every night.

Continue to look out every Monday for a new post from your DSU Softball Hornets.
