Her favorite thing about basketball would be the group of friends that comes with it. “I like that I make friends who all have the similar interest of basketball,” she says. Being an only child, Hahn says her teammates are the closest thing to siblings she has. “I also really like the adrenaline rush that comes with playing in games,” she says. Her favorite memory comes from her senior year at Rosemont. On senior day, the team found out they would be making playoffs for the first time in school history.

Academically, Katy received a merit letter two years in high school, has been a student-athlete of the year, and her career ambition is to go into sports management and possibly become a collegiate athletic director.
