Morgan Pinksten - Women's Soccer

Major/Minor:  Athletic Training 

Internships:  Lasell College, Babson College, Emmanuel College, Holy Cross 

Sport team & Position:  Women’s Soccer, Midfield/Forward 

One personal goal for this season: to be a force to recon with and stay composed in the midfield while being a top goal scorer on the team. 

Pregame Superstition? I wear the same hair style all season. Sometimes when I have a good game I’ll wear the same sports bra and spandex I wore that game. But also the pregame traditions we do as a team before each game have become my new superstitions as well. 

What attracted you to Lasell College?  Soccer, location, and the internship connections the Athletic Training Program has.  

What do you hope to do when you graduate?  I hope to be an Athletic Trainer or Strength and Conditioning Coach for athletes/injured athletes as my main career, but I also want to become certified in yoga and coach Soccer as well. 

What is your favorite memory of your time at Lasell? Winning a GNAC championship for sure! But I have also had a few memorable trips to Boston with my friends that I will never forget. 

How has your experience at Lasell prepared you for your future endeavors?  My Athletic Training major clinical sites have prepared me for the real world, yes, due to the hands-on education aspect of it but also the time management and time consumption that clinical requires as well.
