When Melissa was just ten years old her soccer coach stuck her at goalie because she was the tallest on the team. Now, she is the goalie for the Suffolk women’s soccer team. Just two weeks ago Melissa was named GNAC Goalie of the week!
What has been your favorite experience at Suffolk so far?
So far, my favorite experience about Suffolk has to be playing on the soccer team. Some of my closest friends at Suffolk are on my team and the fact that I am still able to play the sport that I love at this level is amazing.
What were your goals for this season?
My goals for this season were to make playoffs and try to have an overall better season than last season. I was upset when the preseason poll placed us in 9th place saying that we would not make the playoffs. My goal was to prove them wrong and show them that we are capable of anything.
What were your thoughts on this season?
The season has had its ups and downs, but we made our way through it. We sealed a spot in the playoff, proved the preseason poll wrong, and upset the undefeated team in the conference.
What’s your favorite inspirational quote?
“Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have pushed you is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back…play for her.” –Mia Hamm
What’s on your pregame playlist?
“All Night Longer” – Sammy Adams
“Till I Collapse” – Eminem
“Shipping Up to Boston” – Dropkick Murphys
“Gangnam Style” – PSY
“Die Young” – Ke$ha
Anything else about yourself or team you’d like to add?
I will never regret my decision to attend Suffolk or play soccer here. My teammates have become my best friends. We are always there for each other and we get through the good and the bad of the season together. They’re what makes me look forward to going to practice everyday. We all have the same love of the game and when we’re altogether playing nothing can be better.
