Hello! My name is Sophia DePasquale. I attend Justice High School in Falls Church, Virginia and am graduating in 2024. I play Soccer and Field Hockey, but my passion is for Soccer and I want to continue playing at a competitive level in college once I graduate. My love of soccer started at four years old when my best friend from ballet asked me to join her team called the “Running Diamonds” - I did join the team, and haven’t looked back since. I knew pretty early on that defense was my thing because I always hated it when the other team scored. I strive everyday to be the best center back, outside back and leader that I can be. My coaches and teammates put a lot of trust in me. I have been co-captain of my club team since 2017, and I was selected as first team all district and second team all region during my freshman year on the varsity high school soccer team.
In addition to sports, I care a lot about my education and involvement in other school activities. I have a 3.8 GPA while taking multiple honors and IB courses, and have been singing in my school chorus for six years. I want to continue expanding my learning in a variety of areas and am looking for a college program that can help me to do that and set me up for success in the future. I will bring my all to whatever program I join, including my strong work ethic, my curiosity and desire to learn, my understanding of the value of teamwork, and my fun loving spirit!
