Amanda Glass off the Pitch:

Full Name: Amanda Megan Glass

Nickname(s): Manda, Manders, Bobo, Cherry Pie

I Chose Cal because...I immediately fell in love with the campus, and I really liked all the girls on the team.Cal is an amazing school academically, and I also wanted to be close to home.

My favorite thing about Berkeley is...there are so many delicious restaurants and the shopping is great!

Something on my iPod that might surprise you is...Miley Cyrus - my sister and I love listening to her.

When I'm upset, I like to...go in my room and listen to music.

I get mad when I miss these TV shows: "90210," "One Tree Hill"

Cal is better than other schools because...we have a ton of spirit, and I love the diversity.

Something I learned from my parents is...always be yourself and everything happens for a reason.

If I wasn't a soccer player, I would be...a volleyball player.However I've never played and I'm not tall.

What is one thing about your hometown that you miss? My room! And my dogs - Cooper, Riley and Barney.
