Amanda Groves off the Pitch:
Full Name: Amanda Jean Groves
Nickname(s): Groves, Grovesy
I Chose Cal because...it has the best of everything!
My favorite thing about the Bay Area is...that it's where I grew up, so I have plenty of memories within the area's liveliness.
Something on my iPod that might surprise you...the Sudoku application, I'm a complete nerd and an addict
When I'm upset, I like to...work out!
I get mad when I miss this TV show: "Entourage"
The best moment in sports history was...when Cal beat Stanford in football with "The Play."
Something I learned from my parents is...balance your life and have fun doing it.
If I wasn't a soccer player, I would be...a runner, but soccer is way more entertaining.
