     Meredith Goodale, a third year, plays defense. Meredith is from Glencoe, Illinois, where she attended New Trier Township High School.  She has been playing lacrosse for the past eight years.  Her favorite lacrosse memory is bus rides with Al on last year's spring break trip.

     Meredith plans on majoring in Biology/Pre-Med. Her dream job after college is to be a pediatrician or emergency medicine.  Meredith chose Augustana College because other family members have attended Augie in the past.  Her favorite thing about Augie is the small school atmosphere. Meredith is most looking forward to figuring out her future plans and studying abroad in Ghana, Africa this year.   When Meredith isn't playing lacrosse she enjoys reading and rowing.

     An interesting fact you may not know about Meredith is that she was a competitive rower throughout high school, and placed second in the national championship in 2010.  Meredith's favorite food is fruit snacks and her favorite color is green.  If Meredith could have dinner with anyone living or dead she would pick Ellen Degeneres because she is hilarious.  A super power Meredith would like to possess is the ability to stop time.  Meredith's favorite sport to watch during the 2012 London Olympic Games was rowing.  Meredith is scared of her basement.  She is inspired by her parents because they have worked hard to give her a lot of opportunities and support her in all that she does.  Meredith is the daughter of Ed and Lisa Goodale and sister of Robin.
