She has earned Top Dog honors once, Dean’s List honors once, COOP honors twice, and CAA Honor Roll recognition five times.

Character

Ross has the ability to be one of the most competitive people on the field, but also one of the nicest. She is extremely talented and commited, but never relies on her talent to get her where she wants to go. These attributes allow her to be successful in every aspect of her life.

She has been able to garner the respect and appreciation of her teammates on the field because of her attributes. They see that she is willing to do everything she asks of others. This respect has resulted in a two years of being on the team’s leadership group, as well as the weekly captain’s vote.

Ross is humble and selfless, always putting the team’s success first. Her impact on the program will be felt for years.

Community

Since arriving at Northeastern, Ross has made an effort to be involved in the community. She has participated in the Breakfast Club, a community clean-up project throughout the Northeastern community.

With the Boston House, she cooked dinner for others. Ross and Northeastern have also been involved with Team IMPACT.

She volunteered with Boston Dream Soccer Association, partnering with other organizations (Hidden Gems, Boston Scores, Beyond Soccer, UCAL Breakaway) to create engagement with the community through soccer.

In 2019, Ross was named to the All-CAA first team, NEWISA All-New England first team, and United Soccer Coaches All-East Region third team. Through 19 starts, she logged a team-high 1769 minutes and was on the field for all five of Northeastern’s shutouts. She recorded one assist.

Prior to the start of the season, she was named the preseason CAA Defensive Player of the Year.

In 2018, Ross earned All-CAA first team honors while helping Northeastern keep six shutouts. Five of those were during CAA play. She defended during the entirety of the Huskies’ stretch of 522 consecutive minutes without conceding an opposing goal, spanning seven matches. She also scored one goal.

In 2017, she was named to both the All-CAA first team and CAA All-Rookie team. Ross led the Huskies’ outfield players in minutes played as a freshman, scoring two goals in the process. She contributed to 10 clean sheets, including two during the CAA tournament.
