Student-Athlete Profile 

Meghan’s teammate tells us how Meghan overcomes obstacles through grit and tenacity: “Meghan Sorg has been my teammate for around 6 years and has grown into someone that you know you can count on whether through advice or friendship. At the start, Meghan had asthma that could have impeded or led most people to give up or quit. But if you know Meghan you know that is not an option instead she improved on what she could control by practicing more and training harder than most people. In the end, this impediment was only a small obstacle and her grit and tenacity showed on and off the field as a leader by example. More recently, Meghan has proven herself as a leader not because she is the loudest or most demanding, but because of her confident and optimistic attitude in tough situations. Whether we were losing a game or facing a difficult injury, Meghan had a cool, calm, and collected presence that spread to the team and inspired hope. Meghan honors the game as a successful student-athlete that serves as a role model for others. Some would argue the sole purpose of a sport is whether you win or lose. However, sports can serve as a platform for developing independent and responsible youth through building relationships or learning how to balance sports and school. Meghan’s ability to earn good grades and still play sports resonates in others and she serves as an example of someone who matured and grew into a better person by playing a sport and therefore honoring it.”
