4/26 Student Athlete - Mary Williams

Her first season in net, she was all-state, she repeated the accomplishment last year, and now, she's our student athlete of the week.

Riverheads senior Mary Williams isn't afraid to tell it like it is. "She's a very vocal person, and she speaks her mind, and lets you know where she stands."

"She comes with what some people say is an attitude."

"I might have a little bit of an attitude."

"But that's not necessarily negative. It's just an attitude."

"If I don't understand something, it's gonna drive me nuts. I have to know why," says Mary Williams

"She will make sure that she understands how the problem is supposed to be solved," says Mary’s calculus teacher Larry Hull.

On the field, much of Mary's success comes from something she wasn't taught.

"She has that attribute that you just cannot coach, in the aggressiveness when that ball's coming at her."

"You can't be scared that you're gonna get kicked in the face, or in the side, or something like that. And I've reached the point where I don't even think about it anymore," says Mary's Asstant. Soccer Coach David Clymore.

Mary's only been playing goalkeeper for the last three seasons, but she's already been all-state twice, including first team as a sophomore.

"And she brings to the table the best she can be. There, and in the classroom."

"I don't know. I just don't like giving less than my best. Slacking don't come easy to me."
