said Mongrain in 1989 after her season at Cardinal Gibbons High School as an exchange student, “it was very difficult, harder than I had imagined, but I was too proud to give up and go home. Sports helped me me because they kept me so busy. I never really had a chance to sit around and feel sorry for myself. Plus, they got me involved and helped me make friends”... wrote Sylvie Béliveau in 1995, Mongrain was a “very experienced player, tremendously disciplined... she is a great leader both on and off the field”...

said Mongrain in 2021, “I really liked playing centre back because I liked being aggressive, I liked the physical play and taking on opponents. Canada was well known for working hard and challenging ourselves, but we had no comparisons because we were the first ones. It was a great group, we had a love for the game and we had passion”... said Mongrain in 2021, “it was a real privilege to wear the Canada shirt because Canada is such a great country. With that privilege comes responsibility, a responsibility to be a good ambassador for our country and that’s how we were. I was fortunate to wear the Canada shirt”... also said Mongrain in 2021, “in those years, we rarely had women’s soccer on TV and there were no commercials with women’s athletes, so my inspiration were my teammates and the coaches that helped me out during that journey. They were so generous and I was very fortunate to have exceptional people cross my path, so I am very thankful and grateful to them”...
