BERKELEY - Each week, CalBears.com will feature a freshman women's soccer player, and this week's participant is defender Megan Indermill. Not only a gifted athlete but an intellectual as well, Indermill is attending Cal as a bioengineering major and Regents and Chancellor's scholar after graduating high school with a 4.84 GPA and as valedictorian. She earned eight varsity letters during her high school career in soccer and track, holding the league title for the 800m and 4X400m races in track. On the soccer side, Indermill was a four-year starter and two-time captain for the Hart HS soccer team, taking it to the CIF semifinals in 2008 and quarterfinals in 2008. That prep squad elected Indermill the best midfielder in 2007, the best defender in 2008 and the most valuable player in 2010. Additionally, she was named to the 2008, 2009 and 2010 All-Foothill League teams as well as the 2009-10 CIF female student-athlete of the year. Off the high school pitch, her club team was a two-time national cup semifinalist, 2008 coast soccer league cup champions and 2007 Surf Cup semifinalist. CalBears.com caught up with Indermill, who goes by Indy with her Cal teammates, to discuss all things Megan.
