Sophomore soccer star, center/midfielder Caroline Militello of MICDS is the MVP for Week No. 5. Her teammates give her a lot of credit. “She makes sure all of her teammates are involved, and get scoring chances,” said Klasey Medelberg.
Militello has been pounding the back of opponents nets in a 16-7-0 Rams season. She has 23 goals, 25 assists for 71 points and 6 game winning goals. Coach Michael Black would be hard pressed without this steady performer in his lineup.
The Rams open district play Monday at Westminster Christian Academy facing Metro rival Villa Duchesne in this year’s rematch. Villa just won the title over the Rams 1-0 in a fiercly fought game recently.
Militello is a steady performer during the winter on the basketball team.
Patch caught up to her for a quick one on one session:
What do you like best about playing for your team.
My teammates. We have a very young team but with a nice balance of juniors and seniors. I also like that more and more MICDS girls are playing club soccer, too. I think the program is only going to get better.
How is your team doing this year?
We are doing pretty well (16-7-0). We've scored a lot of goals this year. Many of our losses have been by just one goal (Nerinx, Webster, and Villa, for example).
What other sports do you play.
What is your favorite tune on your iPod.
I have a lot of country music, but my favorite is probably Luke Bryan.
