Alise Emser

Westlake graduate Alise Emser is entering her second season with the Indian State University Sycamores. After starting all 17 games and not scoring as a freshman, she's hoping to start as a sophomore and pick up her first collegiate goal.

Entering her sophomore season at Indiana State University, Westlake graduate Alise Emser is looking to make her mark with the Sycamores this year. As a freshman, the midfielder started all 18 games, registered 10 shots (six on goal) but did not find the back of the net.

This year, she said her goal is to start every game again, get good playing time, and score that elusive first goal with Indiana State.

“Over the summer, I work out during the week at (Sports Force) in Rocky River,” Emser said. “I also run during the week and make sure to work on my touches and shot throughout the summer.”

Emser said the biggest change between high school and college play was getting used to the speed, as well as the increased physical challenges. “The play is much faster and some of the girls are much bigger than me, which makes for some rough games,” she said.

Aside from playing with her best friends at Westlake, Emser said her favorite memory with the Demons was scoring the game-winning goal against Amherst in the 2015 playoffs.
