SOL #1 - HMS Soccer Tryouts

I played soccer in college at North Central
College in Naperville Illinois. This picture
was taken during an Alumni game after
I graduated.

It's that time of year - SOCCER SEASON :) I am very excited to get back into coaching girl's soccer this spring at Heritage after a year off! Last year due to class I wasn't able to coach, but this year I'm back baby! If you know nothing about me, I am a self-proclaimed soccer nut. I started playing at the age of 7 and have played every year since, of course now I don't play as often. I have played on school teams, club teams and even played for a Division III college. If that doesn't convince you, when the U.S. won the Women's World Cup in 1999 I dedicated an entire wall in my bedroom to posters, newspapers, pennants and more - anything that was US Soccer related went up on my wall. I'm ready for another GREAT SEASON #hmsfalcons


  1. It's always great to become involved again in something you love after an absence... there's such a renewed enthusiasm and I'm sure your girl's will play even better because of it. Wishing you a GREAT SEASON. Looking forward to taking this March SOL journey with you.

  2. I had no idea about this part of you, your soccer nut side! So the poster wall, that was in your last place? Are you going to do something in your new house with your soccer memorabilia? :-) I hope you guys have an awesome season this year!!

    1. Oh my gosh no Michelle, I think Heather would have a fit if I dedicated a wall in the new house:) The soccer wall was the brainchild of my 16 year old self!

  3. I love how soccer has evolved for women since I played as the only girl on a boys team in 1980. Later I remember being the only teens playing and we had to travel far to play all girls. We mostly got stuck playing younger boys teams locally. I am so glad that you coach and have had the opportunity to share your talent with future generations! Welcome to the challenge! Can't wait to learn more!

  4. As you grow up, you notice how teachers have separate “fun” sides!

  5. I was in a soccer team with my math teacher. His name was mr. Lopez he’s so cool but he didn’t have fun ideas either
