Hi, my name is Kate Melvin and I'm from Milford Delaware. I've been playing hockey since I was about 7 years old. I started playing because my older sister played. When I started, I couldn't stop and never did. Every time I step on the field its for the love of the game. I think that's a big reason as to why I want to play in college, because I love the game. Every time I pick up my stick I want to learn and I want to get better as an individual. I run track for my high school and I love the sport, but its more individual work with individual success. With field hockey you have a family, you have 10 other girls on the field with you sharing the same love for the same sport at the same time. Its pretty amazing. My major choice changes from time to time, but I am certain that I want to be in the medical field. I think being able to bond well with a team is the most important key to a teams success. That's why I believe that I'd be a good candidate for your team because I love to play and win, but I love to be a part of a team and win even more.
