LakePoint, Ga. - In the first ASUN Beam Video Series, the conference features student-athletes across the ASUN that have made an Impact in the classroom, in competition and in the community. Throughout the spring, the ASUN will feature two student-athletes from each institution that epitomize the conference's beam of Impact.
An essential player on the pitch, NJIT's Arianna Gerber without a doubt has made an impact on the Highlanders' Women's Soccer program on and off the field since her freshman year. Despite missing the end of her junior season due to injury, Gerber has had an incredible collegiate career at NJIT and continues to excel in all aspects of a true student-athlete.
Since stepping foot on the field for the Highlanders, Gerber has garnered multiple accolades such as making the 2016 ASUN All-Freshmen Team and 2017 ASUN All-Conference Second Team. In her sophomore season, the forward racked up six assists, setting a new NJIT Division-I single season record along with 16 starts and 18 appearances. Gerber has also totaled 25 career points which ranks second all-time in Highlander D-I program history and sits at fifth in career goals (8). Although Gerber endured an injury in the latter half of her junior season, she recorded 10 starts in 10 games played, three goals, two of which were game winners and three assists for a total of nine points.
Gerber's success doesn't stop on the field, as the upcoming senior posts a 3.71 GPA majoring in Biology along with three-consecutive semesters on the Dean's List. In addition to her academic performance, she is also an active member in the Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society. When Gerber isn't on the field or in the classroom, she has decided to dedicate her time volunteering at the St. Ann's Soup Kitchen Literacy Room and Camden Street Elementary School Reading Program in New Jersey.
