Hello. My name is Abigail Harmon. I am 17 years old and going into my senior year at Quincy High School in Quincy, MI. My love for soccer began at the age of 4 when I started playing for my local AYSO. I continued playing AYSO every year until I was eligible for my high school team. During these years, playing on my high school soccer team was a goal and something I was looking forward to. Being able to represent my high school in a sport I love was and still is a goal. In addition to AYSO, I also have played a couple of years of travel soccer. Playing on different teams has given me the ability to adapt to different teams, teammates, and coaching styles.
During my freshman year, my soccer season started in March 2020 right before state restrictions went into place due to Covid. For those practices on the varsity team, I was being trained and coached to be a starting forward along with the seniors. During those practices, I clicked instantly with the other starting forwards with just basic glances to communicate. In addition to playing forward, attacking midfield is also another position I play. Some of my strengths consist of endurance, speed, passing, and quick thinking.
In addition to soccer, I am a hard-working, motivated student-athlete. As a Junior, I currently have a 3.4 GPA and taking courses in high school to pursue a college education in business. In addition to soccer, I am also a part of the high school cross country and basketball teams and have helped with Student Council. Even in middle school, I was very active. I was involved in Youth in Government, Student Council and also a member of the cross country, basketball and track teams. With all of the school involvements, I had perfect attendance and was on the high honor roll. I am very motivated and focus-driven. I am still a part of the cross country, basketball, and track teams which each earned the title of conference champions. In track, I had a specific goal. I broke and now hold the 100-meter school record. In addition, I was part of the 4x100 relay team that broke a 40-year-old record. During these years I have developed traits in perseverance, dedication, and time management.
Outside my school activities, I have volunteered with my 4H club, at the 4-H fair eat stand, vacation bible school, church Christmas events, and miscellaneous fundraising run events. Taking part in and supporting my community has and will always be important to me.
For my future after high school, I plan on attending a college that is a fit academically and where I also can continue to grow as a student-athlete. Finding this fit will help build my character as a student, as an athlete, and also as an individual that can serve others.
