Kristina Cleverdon found a love for soccer from her dad who grew up playing the game as it became more popular in the US. Kristina is formally from Mendon, MA where she played for her varsity team beginning in eighth grade. A starter for four years she lead the team in scoring her final year. Kristina began playing premier soccer at age 11 for Post Road Soccer Club. At the age of 15 Kristina wanted to advance her playing career and moved on to play with Nor’Easter where they won a state championship and advanced to the northeast regionals. Kristina continued her play with the Super Y team, the Lady Crusaders where they won two national championships.

After high school Kristina went to the University of New Hampshire where she decided to focus on her studies. After her first year she couldn’t handle not playing soccer and transferred to the University of Massachusetts Lowell. As a transfer student Kristina stepped right in and made a large impact to the River Hawks central midfield. Kristina played 18 out of the 19 games as her team advanced to the NCAA tournament. The following season Kristina had a large climb to make as she was coming back from tearing her ACL in the late spring. Kristina played 9 games that season.
