Mallory Koula:
Women’s soccerWhat was your favorite part about the team’s trip to Philadelphia?


How did it feel to finally beat St. Norbert College?
Amazing, but we still have work to do!

What will be the team’s biggest challenge for the rest of the season?
Staying healthy.

How are the new team members adding to the team’s dynamic?
They all fit in so well right from the start! It’s great to have Cassie in the net. Amanda and Natalie are both great defenders, but in different ways: Amanda is aggressive and tenacious while Natalie is very composed.
Who did you cheer for in the World Cup this summer? What did you like about them?
USA, of course – and Argentina because their coach was funny.

Robbie Ulloa:

What is the biggest difference in the team from this year to last year?
This year I think we are more determined and dedicated to do the things we need to win compared to last year.

How did it feel to score your first career touchdown versus Knox?
It felt really awesome to score my first touchdown against Knox. I also believe it helped me play better the rest of the game.

What are the team’s goals for the rest of the season?
Our goals for the rest of the season are to keep improving and hopefully end the year with a great season.

What’s your favorite professional team and who is your favorite professional player and why?
My favorite professional team is the Bears, but my favorite professional player is Reggie Bush because I’m a huge USC fan.

What are your personal goals for the rest of the season?
My personal goals for the rest of the season are to end the year with a record better than .500, beat Ripon, and hopefully have a few interceptions, since I still have yet to get one in my career.
