After finding immediate success with the additions of Colombian’s Tatiana and Natalia Ariza, head coach Kelley Guth again has added a player with experience in the South American soccer community. Arrendono is a skilled player with great speed and vision, who brings a knack for creating opportunities while also playing a simple game.

“Melanie is very strong technically and physically,” Guth said. “She will distribute well out of the midfield and can be a scoring threat from a distance.”

At the American School of Tampico, Arrendondo excelled in track and field, as well as on the soccer pitch. On the track she ran the 75-meter dash, the 100-meter dash and the 4×100-meter relay, while also participating in the long jump. But it was in soccer where Arrendondo found her true calling.

She led Tampico to four Association of American Schools in Mexico (ASOMEX) national championships and also won three state championships playing for the historic Jaiba Brava club team. Arrendondo also won a national championship in the women’s national soccer league, in fact, scoring the game-winning goal in the championship game.
