Since I can't imagine a day without soccer, I can't imagine a college experience without soccer. My name is Natalie Rudman and I attend Gilbert HIgh School in Gilbert, IA. I have earned a 4.0 GPA all four semesters. I was the leading scorer on my high school soccer team with 25 goals my freshman year. I was named 1st Team All District and 1st Team All Conference. I also play club soccer for both Ames Soccer Club and Iowa ODP.
My goals for college are to: excel academically, belong to and contribute to my soccer team, be involved in campus life, and make lifelong friends and memories that cause me to grow and become a better version of myself. I am an excellent teammate because I work hard constantly, try to lead by example, encourage my teammates, desire feedback and am always looking for ways to improve on and off the field. I have worked continuously on my technical skills, soccer IQ, and overall speed and fitness. I try to make the most of every opportunity I am given and learn from the mistakes I make. I am committed to being healthy and balanced both physically and mentally; I try to make choices that represent my family and my community well.
