Classroom

Maja Green will graduate this spring with a degree in business administration. She currently holds a 3.62 cumulative GPA and is on pace to graduate cum laude. She has earned Academic All-WAC honors in each of her first three seasons at CSU Bakersfield and is expected to complete her fourth season with the honor as well.

Character

Green has been a leader of the CSUB team since she arrived in 2014. She conducts herself both on and off the field at a high level. She has a natural enthusiasm and love for the game, but also enjoys the competitive side. Every time the team has raised the bar in the classroom, soccer field or in the community, she has been at the front leading by example.

Community

Green has been at the heart of every community service event in which the team has been involved. Whether it’s reading in schools or coaching young players at clinics, she goes above and beyond to make it the best experience for everyone. As a captain, she also has helped the team organize events in the community and communicate the importance of them.

Competition

Even as a defender, Green ranks on the school’s top 20 all-time list in career points and goals. She is on pace to break the CSUB Division I record for matches started and minutes played. She has been a constant fixture on the CSUB back line and has helped the Roadrunner defense transform into a formidable wall. Prior to her arrival at CSUB, the 2013 squad allowed its opponents to score nearly three times as many goals. A year ago, with Green leading the effort, the `Runners narrowed the gap to only five goals difference. She has been honored by the Western Athletic Conference several times including first-team All-WAC (2016), second-team All-WAC (2014) and being named to the preseason All-WAC team twice in her career.
