Viking Athlete of the Week - September 24, 2020

From the coach:  Laura has been an outstanding SR leader this year! She is a great competitor and consistently gives 100% for her teammates. We recently made a positional change with her and she has proven to be the player we were looking for at center back. She’s physical, plays a really good technical game & her ability to read the game from the back, which helps us play out deep in transition. Laura has always excelled academically as well as being an awesome social & community/volunteer leader. 

Favorite thing about sports: The competitive aspect. What I love about soccer is that I am able to tune out of my personal life and just put my heart into the game and compete to the best of my abilities

Person who has influenced you: My parents. They have never missed a game of mine and have always supported me

How do you prepare for a game or meet?: Through mental preparations. That means taking time to reflect on what I need to do better in order to improve my performance for myself and my team. A lot of times before a game I will listen to music and that’s when I start mentality prepare myself.

Highlight of athletic career:  The night we opened our turf feild. We won the game in what I believe was the last 5 seconds. That was a very special night to my teammates and me.

Future goals: Getting my college degree in Visual Communications. I am also looking into playing soccer in college.
