There has been no stopping junior forward Melissa Gavin since she has first stepped foot on the field for the Yale women's soccer team. In 2011, Gavin became just the fourth player in Yale history to be named the Ivy League Rookie of the Year. This past weekend, Gavin scored her team-leading sixth goal of the season to help the Bulldogs to a thrilling overtime victory against defending Ivy champion Princeton. Gavin is the latest Total Mortgage Athlete Spotlight of the Week.

Gavin is certainly no stranger to the spotlight. In 2011, she was named to the NSCAA Mid-Atlantic Region third team, as well as the NEWISA All-New England first team. She accounted for 29 points in her first two seasons with the Bulldogs. This year, she has already been awarded the 2013 season's first Ivy League Player of the Week Award for leading her team to two victories on the opening weekend of the season. She currently leads the league in both goals (6) and points (14) through the first eight games.

Gavin, a native of Duxbury, Mass., was an NSCAA All American for Duxbury High School. She has been a member of the Region I ODP team since 2006, traveling to Ireland, Spain, Portugal and Russia to compete with the team. This past summer, Gavin attended the London School of Economics.

Don't miss Gavin and her teammates host Harvard this Saturday at Reese Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 4 p.m.
