The Rice freshmen have made an impact on the soccer team this season. Now it's time to see if the rookies can have a similar outcome when fielding the rugged Just For Kicks questions.
Owl freshman forward Ashton Geisendorff has played in every game and worked her way into three starting assignments. The young standout has registered a total of 250 minutes and maintained a .400 shots-on-goal percentage.
