30-second timeout with Alli Jakubek, Howard senior catcher

Howard senior catcher Alli Jakubek, a captain for the Lions this spring, has helped her team to a share of first place through the first half of the regular season.

She has played a major role in several of the victories, including delivering the game-winning hit in an early-season win over Broadneck.

She recently took some time out to answer a few questions about some of her interests off the field.
