Lauren Nesshoever (Biological Sciences, Class of 2017) is from Chittenden, Vermont where she graduated from Otter Valley High School. Nesshoever has played soccer since she was in fifth grade through the elementary soccer program. She also played club soccer since she was eleven for a local team and then joined a non-local team three years later,  allowing her to gain a better experience. At sixteen, she traveled even further to play for an even better team called Nordic Premier. Nesshoever played forward and midfielder in high school, where she scored a total of 42 goals, giving her a record.

Nesshoever transferred into Southern Vermont College (SVC) at the end of her freshman year, because of the “biological sciences program here and how it is geared towards the medical field. I also knew that if I came here I would be able to not only play soccer, but lacrosse as well.”

Nesshoever has served as captain during both her senior year in high school and here at SVC. She has received several nominations throughout her career. In high school, she received the Marble Valley League All-Star during her sophomore, junior, and senior seasons. Also, her senior season she received an All State letter. For SVC, Nesshoever has received the All Academic Award her sophomore, junior, and she is hoping, for her senior year as well. Also, she has received All Conference her sophomore and junior seasons. Lastly, she received the Mountaineer Female Scholar Athlete of the Year during her junior season.

When asking Nesshoever what her goal for soccer was here at SVC, she replied with, “My goal is to continue to be a force within the conference. I would really love to see this program beat the teams that we haven’t found a win against yet in the conference. I would also like to see the program develop into a more year-round type of style where there would be enough players on the team to hold a successful spring season.” She informed me that her teammates and her get along pretty well, despite being on a girls team where they have fairly big personalities and egos that sometime clash together.

This past season, Nesshoever was injured and had to have surgery performed, when I asked her how it was to watch from the sidelines she notes, “Honestly, watching your team from the sideline is one of the hardest things to do. It took a toll on me mentally because all I wanted was to be out there with them. I’m very thankful for the players on my team because even on my worst days, when I would have set backs, they lifted me back up and made me feel proud to be a part of the team and as their leader.”
