Molly Hancock could have enrolled at Albion College, in her words, as a “a non-athletic regular person.” The first-year student from Midland didn't play soccer her senior year in high school, but she decided to pursue it again after her spring Albion orientation, and she has scored three goals while starting in eight of the Britons' first 13 matches. Her overall goal is medical school, but the biochemistry major and Spanish minor already fulfilled another one—international travel—through her First-Year Seminar's trip to Frankfurt and Heidelberg, Germany, during fall break.
