My name is Zara Powell and I have played soccer for more than ten years with the last seven played at the club soccer level where we have won division state championships. Our team competes at the state premier level.
I have been a member of the Indiana State Select ODP team for multiple years. I recently completed my third varsity high school season where I started at Center Back and earned Academic All-State honors while being named First-Team All-Conference, First Team All-Area, and earned the Defender of the Year award for my team. I have been selected to participate in the North/South All-Star match for the second year in a row. I have had the opportunity to play multiple positions in my playing career but really enjoy the center back position.
I have many interests off the field including show choir, orchestra, coaching youth soccer, and refereeing soccer. Academically I have a strong interest in the health sciences and am particularly interested in pursuing a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree. I currently rank 18 out of 567 in my class. I consider myself a very competitive person in anything I do. My goal is to play soccer where I can contribute to a competitive program at a university that offers top academic programs.
