As the UMass women's soccer season progresses, UMassathletics.com will sit down with different members of the team to find out a little bit about them. Sophomore midfielder Meghan Gould shares her thoughts this week.

UM: What made you want to play soccer?
I was too energetic for ballet class so my parents decided to sign me up for something where I had to run around.

UM: What's your favorite moment in soccer?
My favorite moment was scoring the winning goal in the North Finals in high school. I went to a Catholic school and we were playing my hometown so it was a big deal.

UM: What do you like to do in your spare time?
I don't have much spare time, but when I do I love to go shopping. I also like to hang around with my friends and listen to music or watch TV.

UM: Can you describe an average day during the season?
An average day during the season is crazy. Classes, studying, eating, practices, and games. It takes up a lot of time and we are always on a tight schedule.

UM: What is your major? What is your career goal?
I am undecided but I would like to be a Comm-Dis major. I would like to work in a hospital or a school setting with children.

UM: Do you have any pregame rituals?
I don't really have any rituals, but a couple of us always sit in the locker room and listen to music. On occasion we have a pre-game dance party.

UM: How does it feel to be back and starting this season after the injury you had last year?
It feels great. I worked hard all spring and all summer to get back to where I was. It was hard having two surgeries last year and keeping a positive mindset, but with hard work everything turned out great, so I am happy.

UM: What is your favorite UMass sport other than soccer? Why?
I would have to say hockey just because I like going to the games and listening to the music they play before and during the game. The games are a lot of fun and tons of people go to watch.



UM: What is the best advice you have for a prospective Division I athlete?
The best advice I could give would be time management. Learn how to manage your time because it will save you from a lot of confusion and stress once you go to school.

UM: Ten years down the road, where do you see yourself?
Ten years down the road I see myself married with children.
