She is capable of playing all positions on the soccer field, from center back to midfield to forward, giving the coaching staff great flexibility in placing her where the team needs her the most. Christina is not only capable of playing multiple positions, but she plays them well in the process. She has helped the Varsity Girls Soccer team achieve a 9-2-1 record so far this season. Her passion, drive, attitude, and work ethic are what helps Christina excel at her sport of choice. Christina plans on playing in college and she will do well wherever she decides to attend.
