From the fall of 2001- 2003, Kelly Fink put on quite a performance playing for the Women’s Soccer team.

Fink, whose 67 career goals rank fifth all-time in the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, was also selected to the WIAC All-Centennial Team.

Additionally, Fink was named WIAC Player of the Year for her performance in the 2003-2004 season.

With a record of 51-7-5 throughout the 2001-2003 seasons, Fink was a large part of the Pointers’ success.

Fink has been influenced by former teammate Jenny Bruce, who also happens to be a Hall of Famer.

“Jenny and I were a force to be reckoned with since I would say the majority of goals I scored were assisted by Jenny,” Fink said.

Another major influence throughout Fink’s soccer career was coach Sheila Miech.

“Sheila was just an overall amazing lady that pushed me and guided me in any endeavor while at Stevens Point,” Fink said.

When Fink learned that she was being inducted into the Pointers Athletic Hall of Fame she said she was a bit shocked by the news.

“Two years in a row I’ve been shocked during a phone call from Stevens Point. First was being named to the WIAC All-Centennial team last year and then this,” Fink said.

With all the success she had as a Pointer, it is no surprise seeing her name in the Hall of Fame.

“In my 32 years on this earth, my greatest and fondest memories always somehow come back to the fact that I was a Pointer soccer player,” Fink said.
