Sometimes, it is easy to spot out the high scorers of an athletic event and note their performances as great. But women’s head coach Terry Gurnett realizes that Meg Barritt not only “played subperbly in both games this week, [and although] her work wasn’t necessarily reflected on the scoreboard, [she] was a superior presence in the middle both games.”

In fact, Barritt’s notable performances helped the women win the University Athletic Association Championship and advance to the NCAA Div. III playoffs.

Meg has been playing soccer since she was five years old. Off the turf, she enjoys “playing frisbee and laughing.”

In fact, in 10 years, all she knows is that she will be doing “something that makes [her] happy, exactly what, [she is] still not sure.”

Right now, on her days off, she sees would like to be “somewhere with friends, playing around outside and not having a care in the world.”

But this care-free, down-to-earth soccer player remains her focus. She currently majors in religion and classics and plans to pursue a brain and cognitive science minor.
