JUST FOR KICKS! Meet The Rice Soccer Team - Rachel Petmecky

Oct. 19, 2010

Not only has freshman defender Rachel Petmecky started each of the Rice soccer team's last four games, the rookie has rarely come off the field to total 334 minutes of playing time the last two weekends. Just For Kicks has the same philosophy and doesn't so much as blink about putting a talented first year player under the intense pressure of its interview questions. Just For Kicks is charging with a trident!
