Kaitlin Paletta off the Pitch:
Full Name: Kaitlin Paletta
I Chose Cal because...I wanted to stay in California, but it's still far enough from home.
Favorite thing about the Bay Area is...the diversity
Something on my iPod that might surprise you is...all my boy band classics.
Most interesting thing I did this summer was...go to Italy with the team.
When I'm upset, I like to...go on a walk.
I get mad when I miss this TV show: "Wife Swap"
The best moment in sports history was when...all the important historic moments in "Remember the Titans" occurred.
Cal is better than other schools because...it has the GBC.
Something I learned from my parents is...a strong work ethic.
If I wasn't a soccer player, I would be...a student.
Do you have any hidden talents? No, I'm no Houdini.
What is one thing about your hometown that you miss? The beach.
