80 in 80: Marquette

As part of our efforts to preview all 80 teams competing in USQ World Cup 8, the Quidditch Post is chatting with representatives from each team. Today we spoke with Matthew Fiebig, captain of Marquette University Quidditch.

Quidditch Post: First off, congratulations on qualifying. Secondly, what are Marquette's goals at this year's World Cup?
Matthew: Thank you. It's to score more points than the other team. Our goal is to make it to bracket play and then go as far as we can.

QP: What do you think it will take for your team to make bracket play?
Matthew: Funding, female beaters, and have beaters and chasers working on the same level.

QP: You specifically singled out female beaters. Do you believe that is an area that needs to be strengthened prior to World Cup?
Matthew: Yes. I would say that's our major weakness.

QP: What is your team looking forward to most about World Cup?
Matthew: Hanging out with other teams, the high level of competition, and the warm weather.

QP: Are there any teams in particular that you would like to play, or think Marquette matches up well with?
Matthew: We always want to play the toughest competition to test our strength.

QP: Alright, fair enough. What players do you think could make a significant impact for Marquette at World Cup?
Matthew: On our team: Will Wasielewski, Nathan Digmann, and Matthew Angel.

QP: Would you mind going into a little more detail about these players and what they offer to your team on pitch?
Matthew: Will is tall, athletic, and can intercept passes across the goals as our keeper. Nathan is fast and agile. He has good hands and can score from any range. Angel has great agility and hands. He can run around anyone and score quickly.

QP: Alright, I think that just about covers it. Thank you very much, Matthew!
Matthew: No problem. Have a good day.
