Melissa is a very versatile player. She has a great game sense and a great defensive presence on the field. She has proven she can play back and midfield and is ready for this level. One of the best things about Melissa is that she really enjoys to compete. She has a tremendous amount of passion for the game and I believe she will make a significant contribution as a freshman.
This group is rich in talent and personality. They embody the spirit of Wake Forest field hockey and I look forward to their contributions as student-athletes. I have faith in their ability to keep up the strong tradition of Wake Forest hockey.
I've had the chance to watch Hilary develop for the past six or seven years and I am proud to have her as a part of this program. She has great hands and I think the combination of hockey and soccer helped with her development of the game. She has off the ball awareness and is a very finesse player. She will look to come in and play for us in the midfield and up front.
