Ali Myers, senior midfielder, patrols the middle of the soccer field, maintaining her defensive line and creating chances for her teammates.

Myers’ ability to scan the field comes from, in large part, her photography background. Myers, a communication studies major with a minor in business, plans on traveling for six months to build her portfolio.
