What has not changed is Grandys' desire to win. It’s been with her for as long as she can remember.
“She always wants to win,” Wiest said. “It doesn’t matter what we’re doing. It could be a game of cards and she’ll want to win. No matter what.”
It’s the truth.
“He’s not wrong, I’m definitely competitive and I’m the harshest critic on myself,” Grandys said. “I feel like I have the ability to be the best, so I strive to be the best. It could be something as small as a card game, but I’m definitely a perfectionist and I want to win.”
However, winning isn’t just defined by victories for Grandys. And while she prefers those “Ws,” as someone passionate about the game of soccer, she believes it’s a victory in itself by playing the game the right way.
“If we play well collectively and I did my best then that’s fine with me,” she said. “I’m all about playing good soccer and there’s plenty of time off the field with team dinners and stuff for goofing around, but I’m serious about playing the game.”
And the Foxes will be blessed to have her back for her senior year next spring.
“I’m excited for next year and to see how we grow as a team as we get more used to each other,” Grandys said. “Some seniors are leaving so that’s always sad, but I think I’m not as worried about that as I’m excited to see what we can do.”
