My name is Haylie Panter and I'm a sophomore at Central Hardin High School in Cecilia, Kentucky. I have been on the soccer team at Central Hardin High School since seventh grade. My second season, I was named JV Offensive Player of the Year. As a freshman, I was a starter on Varsity. I received All Area Sophomore of the Year. I also have been playing on a Club soccer team since my U9 season, starting with the Athletico Flames in Elizabethtown, KY and then transferring to Javanon Soccer Club in Louisville, KY. In 2016, my Javanon club team won the Soccer Village Cup Championship sponsored by Kentucky Youth Soccer. During my U13 and U14 seasons, my Javanon team was in the Final Four of the Kentucky State Open Cup. I also represented my 2004 age group on the Kentucky ODP team in 2017. My primary position is attacking and defensive mid-fielder, but I have played various other positions.
In school this year, I have been on the "All A" honor roll each semester. I realize the value and importance of education and want to become an educator myself in the future. I have a strong work ethic and my parents have instilled in me that commitment and dedication are very important. My drive to succeed, competitiveness, and desire to work hard for my goals is what makes me a winning student athlete. I have played soccer since I was four and because I enjoyed it so much, I sacrificed playing other sports. The reason is because I wanted to focus on one sport where I could become the best I could possibly be. This is why it doesn't bother me that two to three days a week, my parents drive me over 40 miles to soccer practice. Yes, long car rides to and from practice may seem like it would get old, but I use that time to prepare myself mentally for what I need to do each practice that could be better than my last practice, to help me in games.
Finally, my ultimate goal is to receive a strong education so I can secure a future for myself with a good career. But, I also want to continue doing what I love so I can stay in shape and continue to be a part of a team, which is playing soccer. I want to be a part of a successful program that can benefit from my talents and experience. I hope that program is yours!
