Welcome to episode no. 73 of the On The Banks Podcast, as host Lance Glinn welcomes former Rutgers women’s basketball player and current critical care nurse Christa Evans.

Evans was a two-time captain and played in 131 career games despite batting quadriceps tendinitis most of her four seasons on the banks from 2011-2015. Her toughness personified her Rutgers career, so it’s no surprise she is now playing a heroic role off the court as well. She is currently a critical care nurse in the Intensive Care Unit at RWJ University Hospital Somerset.

Evans is on the frontlines of the battle against COVID-19 and she spoke both about this phase of her life, as well as her Rutgers career on the court.

Host Lance Glinn spoke with Evans about her favorite memories during her Rutgers career, her emotions when she found out she was named captain as a junior, how she stays so focused and determined while battling this pandemic, similarities between her playing career and nursing career, and her message as we return to the new normal.

Thanks to Christa for all that she does in her nursing career, as well as being a guest on the podcast. Thanks for listening and enjoy the episode.
