Melissa is in her last year at Michigan and last season for the team. She will graduate with a Bachelor of the Sciences degree in Brain Behavior and Cognitive Science. This is her third year as a starting defender who has shown an impressive defensive skill set. She is a major asset in the back and her quick reactions to opposing attackers is key to the team's success. Oddo is athletic and her parents have proudly watched her over the years. But more than her abilities on the field, she is a great teammate and enjoys an eclectic variety of things.
