Personal:

Would like to play abroad following Cal...Sister Michelle competed in cross country at Bethany University...Parents are Carl and Pam Owens...Mother Pam attended Cabrillo College

A Strong Connection to 2002:

Growing up in Santa Cruz County, Nikki and Cal teammate Breana Kostreba spent time training at Santa Cruz Strength, a weight lifting and conditioning gym owned by none other than former Golden Bear Jocelyn Forest. In 2002, Forest led the Golden Bears to their first-ever NCAA Championship. Nikki notes that her biggest role model is Forest.

An Unconventional Schooling Route:

Nikki was homeschooled until eighth grade. She also skipped kindergarten, so she is a full year younger than the other girls in her recruiting class.

Why I have my number:

My dad was No. 72 on his high school football team. I like 72 because it's different and a little weird. It speaks to my personality.

Pre-game Rituals:

I listen to motivational music or speeches, write "fire" on my wrist with Jasmin (Mejia), always tie my left cleat first and then button the top of my jersey right before I step on the field.
