Favorite Aim memory: “My favorite Aim memory was definitely nationals last summer. I had an awesome time playing at the beach with my friends but I had the most fun playing on the wet turf. We had to go into 1v1s with a sub goalie because our goalie, Nina, had gotten a concussion during that game. We won!”

What her coaches say about her: “Maggie is always eager to play!  She plays with so much energy, it is infectious.  Maggie is always looking to improve her game whether she is performing a new drill, asking a coach to analyze her play or trying out a different position.  I have absolutely enjoyed coaching her this season on the U16 team.” -Julie Murphy, U16 Coach
