Graduating women’s soccer players reminisce

By ABE FIELD

MEGAN RATFIELD ’16

1. What was your fondest memory of LC soccer?

Besides beating Linfield my sophomore year at home, I would have to say it was our second-to-last game this year, coming from behind to beat Whitworth 4-2!

2. What legacy do you hope to leave behind?

I hope to leave our passion and intensity behind. Our senior class brought a lot of heart and commitment to this program, that carried over into competitive practices and determination, which I hope to see continue in the following years.

3. What are your post graduate plans?

Well, to be honest, all I have on the agenda so far is traveling to Europe. After that, I hope to find myself in the business world, preferably sports marketing.

4. Favorite quote?

Plan in decades. Think in years. Work in months. Live in days.

1. My fondest memories of LC soccer are moments of really great soccer but also moments of deep friendship. I will never forget certain goals I got to be a part of (or getting to my goal of scoring five times this year), or crazy saves I witnessed, or getting to dribble the whole field looking to create opportunities. I loved getting to score twice in one game while both my grandmothers watched (one for the first time!).  I loved watching two juniors take us to victory in our senior game vs. Linfield. But really I love the long crazy bus rides and the soft hotel beds and the roaring laughter we’ve all shared. I will miss that beautiful energy that is only found within a soccer team.

2. I hope to leave behind a legacy of work ethic and positivity. Our class was the first to not only dislike loss, but to really demand wins. We’ve worked like crazy every day, and part of that work was positively motivating our teammates.

3. I graduate in December and plan on moving home to get an internship with an environmental defense company. I really want to help change the course of global warming, and am considering coming back to LC Law to become an environmental lawyer.
