Senior bios: Buchanan’s Catherine Lietz

Catherine Lietz is a senior on the Buchanan tennis team.

Activities: Hiking, reading, traveling and hanging out with my sisters.

Hobbies: Singing, acting, writing and playing tennis, of course.

My favorite tennis memory: Hanging out with the team during tournaments and enjoying the food everyone brought.

Awards/Accomplishments: National Honor Society, BCS Scholar 2020.

Advice to underclassmen: Don’t be too hard on yourself.  All you can do is try your best; if you’re doing that, then you’re doing just fine.

Future plans: I am studying music next year at Eastern Michigan University.

How have you been making the best of being quarantined?: I’ve been trying to be productive every day, even if it’s just something like cleaning my room or going for a walk.
