Vanessa Ramirez: “Since I was 5 years old.”

Shelby Swann: “Wow! What inspires you to play soccer? Do you have family member who play?”

Vanessa Ramirez: “Yes, my whole family really. My dad and brother play in the same recreational league together.”

Shelby Swann: “We picked you as player of the week, how does that make you feel?”

Vanessa Ramirez: “I was excited! It’s never happened to me before. It made me feel proud of myself!”

Shelby Swann: “Good! You deserve it. You had two stand out performances in both our games so far. With our lost to Gallaudet University and our shut out win against Valley Forge University. What lead to those performances?”

Vanessa Ramirez: “I was really nervous at the Gallaudet game. I had never practiced at goalie before the season, but once the game begun I just focused in on the game and played well. In the Valley Forge game I developed more confidence in myself and the team knowing we could play better [than against Gallaudet].”

Shelby Swann: “You stopped 66% of Gallaudet’s goals from being scored. The game could have been a lot worse. How did you do it?”

Vanessa Ramirez: “I had to self-motivate and my team motivated me, that lead to my success.”

Shelby Swann: “A perfect game how would your stats and the team stats look?”

Vanessa Ramirez: “Close to how it [the stats] was against Valley Forge. The score and stats reflected teamwork.”

Shelby Swann: “Well you answer my next question of would the Valley Forge game count as a perfect game to you. So, you had 6 shots on goal and 6 saves, how did you make that happen?”

Vanessa Ramirez: “The shots were hard shots, but after putting Gallaudet behind I knew I had to step up in the next game. I knew I would continue to improve.”

Shelby Swann: “Vanessa is a good choice. She’s a hard worker and has a positive attitude.” This is a quote from Coach Olson. I told her your stats stood out to me for player of the week. What is your response to that?”

Vanessa Ramirez: “I have to thank her for that. Amy [Head Coach, Amy Olson] and Jason [Assistant Coach, Jason Gross] pushed me and helped my development at goalie.”

Shelby Swann: “She also mentioned you were injured? What happened and how long will you be out?”

Vanessa Ramirez: “I have a chip fracture in my finger from volleys at practice. I don’t think I’ll be out long. I’ll test it at practice and that will determine if I can compete.”

Shelby Swann: “Well good luck Vanessa and Congrats on making player of the week!”
