Personal: Daughter of Jim and Tina Reinprecht...Has two sisters Katie and Sarah, both played field hockey at Princeton...Nickname is Smalls...Began playing field hockey in 2000...Best Words of Advice: "Have fun. Remember that you are playing because you enjoy the game."
Although Reinprecht's life-long vision of becoming part of the U.S. Olympic Roster has come to fruition, her sight has not always been the clearest. As a one year old, the Perkasie, Pa. native had a cataract removed from her left eye resulting in her vision coming predominately from her right eye. Reinprecht joined the U.S. Women's National Team in 2010 alongside her sister Katie. Not only do both sisters compete for the U.S. National team, but they competed together for Princeton University as well.
