Molly Wilson

Sophomore - Midfielder 5-4

Springfield, Va.
West Springfield

A strong technical player, Wilson made an immediate impact as a freshman a year ago. She became a fixture on the left side of the midfield and became and offensive weapon from the flank. An excellent possesion player, Wilson can beat defenses with the dribble and the pass, as she led the team in assists last year. Her play on the left side will once again be a key to the Commodores success again this year.
