Fun Facts, where we find out more about FCIAC athletes, was a regular feature on The Ruden Report Overtime newsletter. Until we start publishing the newsletter again, we are going to move it here to the site.)

A new Fun Facts with Michelle Prario, the Wilton field hockey team’s outstanding goaltender.

— What is your favorite restaurant in Wilton and what do you order? My favorite restaurant would have to be Orem’s and I always order their quesadilla wrap. 

What’s a hidden talent that you have that most people don’t know? I am actually pretty artistic. I like to draw and paint in my free time.

— What is your favorite pregame music to listen to? I have a game-day playlist that I listen to before every game that consists of a lot of rap and Kanye songs.

— What is your favorite sport to watch and what team do you cheer for? My favorite sport to watch is definitely ice hockey and I have always cheered for the Bruins because my family is Boston sports fans. 

— Who is your favorite celebrity and why? My favorite celebrity ever since I was really young has been Taylor Swift. I grew up listening to her music and have been to three of her concerts.


— Favorite team memory? My favorite team memory at Wilton was probably the excitement of making it to the FCIAC championship game my freshman year, and my favorite team memory for the club team I play for (AGH) was winning bronze medals at the national club championship. 

— What is your favorite subject in school and why? My favorite subject in school would have to be English because I really like writing.

— What is your favorite pregame snack? I don’t like eating right before I play, but earlier in the day I love getting an athlete’s special from the Wilton Deli (bacon egg and cheese with a hashbrown and hot sauce).

— How has it been playing for four different coaches all four years at Wilton? Having a new head coach all four years has certainly been hard to adjust, but having new coaching perspectives and philosophies each year has helped me grow a lot as both a person and player.
