Women’s Soccer Forward Competes on ‘The Price is Right’

On September 6, Mendiola’s competitive spirit transferred straight onto televisions across the U.S. as she hopped onstage to join Drew Carey for a rousing round of “The Price is Right.” The live show was taped over the past summer.

Mendiola was able to guess the closest price on a dirt bike, which allowed her the chance to play a game called “Cover Up” with a new car as the prize. Unfortunately, Mendiola came just two numbers short of winning it.

Mendiola has been a vital part of the Bruins soccer team this year, with her most recent accomplishment being on September 30 when she scored the game-winning goal in overtime against rival SIUE.  Mendiola made sure to give her fellow Bruins an on-air shout-out after greeting Carey onstage during the show.
