Maggie Rustico of Middleton, N.J. was selected as the IMG Academy Girls Soccer Gatorade G-Award recipient for the week of June 3. She has been playing soccer since the age of four, and her position is right midfield. Her favorite thing about IMG Academy is the soccer fields. While Maggie does not have any pre-game rituals, she always gets ice cream after winning a game, even if it's only ten degrees outside.
