Nicole Larson plays Centerback for California State University, Stanislaus women’s soccer team – a team that completed the season 18-1-2 overall, their best season yet.
She is a freshman who was recruited to CSU Stanislaus from Turlock High School.
An honors student and Criminal Justice major, Larson is passionate about her team and making sure athletes are represented.
She is one of the two representatives for women’s soccer on the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and is the Director of Athletics for Associated Students, Inc. (ASI).
Why did you choose to be a Stanislaus Warrior?
When I came on my recruitment trip here, I really loved the team atmosphere that this team brought.
It was really different than the other schools because it was so open and inviting. I just fell in love with the team.
You are heavily involved on campus. How do you handle the stress of so many responsibilities?
I don’t see it as a lot of responsibilities. I’ve always lived by, “Don’t ever leave any door unopened.”
I’ll just rest when I’m dead. And all the spare time that I do have, I always make sure to have quiet time.
I really enjoy playing the ukulele and I write music, so I have something that’s really fun to get me to just sit down and relax.
The women’s soccer team had a great season this year. What attributed to this?
Definitely our intensity. Every practice was a game. We played everything at game pace.
And if you slack off, it’s an insult to the team. You’re not there for yourself; you’re there for the team and that’s what sets us apart from all the other teams.
What do you forecast for women’s soccer next season?
Our talent is so deep in our team that we can keep going. I know that we will get just as far as we did this year, if not farther.
We did lose key players, but we still have the same motivation and the same intensity. We can never lose that.
