GETTING TO KNOW Alyssa Meier

 

This is the first in a series on the Pitt women’s soccer team. Each player during the season will be featured.

 

Midfielder Alyssa Meier begins her redshirt junior season on the Pitt women’s soccer team. The Strongsville, Ohio native made the switch to midfield after playing the majority of her first two seasons in the backfield.
