Martha Schneider '90

Class of 2010

Soccer, Squash, Lacrosse

Martha was a three-sport captain and one of a very few graduates ever to win both the Nobles Shield and the Miller Medal for scholarship and athletics. In soccer, she received all-league honors in both her junior and senior year and was Independent School League MVP her senior year. During Martha’s four years on the varsity soccer team, Nobles won four I.S.L. titles and the New England Championship in 1987.

Former varsity coach Tim Carey recalled: “I had the good fortune to coach Martha for several years. Her greatest quality as an athlete was her humility—she never quite believed that she was as good as everyone knew she was and told her all the time. But she would shrug off everyone and then go out and control a game or score an important goal, like the one that broke a tie against Milton in the waning minutes of her last regular season game for Nobles. She was one of the best athletes I ever coached.” To no one’s surprise, Martha won the Senior Bowl in soccer. She was also an Honorable Mention All-American in lacrosse in the spring of 1990.

Martha went on to play and captain soccer at Harvard.
