Jury Duty 11/21/2023: Caitlin Gresko '25
The newest spotlight on the Women's Basketball junior forward.
The Sports section of the Justice is starting a new column called "Jury Duty" that hopes to spotlight different athletes every week. Please email email@example.com if you would like to nominate someone. My hope and aim for is to bridge the gap between student athletes and non student athletes by highlighting relatable content to make the community feel more approachable. If you see a highlighted athlete around campus, maybe introduce yourself if you have the same taste in music! Or head to Gosman and cheer them on.

Other fun facts about Gresko include her love for vanilla ice cream, her “all-time favorite”, and scented candles. “Growing up, my mom always had different candles for different times of the year … her hobby carried over to me.” You can often find her at Gosman, doing work in the Barry Harsip ‘73 Student Lounge, but Gresko also said she loves hanging out in upper Usdan. “You can often find me throughout the day sitting at some of the tables near The Hive just hanging out with anyone that's around,” she said.
