My name is Katherine Clarke. I play goalkeeper for McLean 04 ECNL and expect to graduate high school in 2022. Soccer has been a big part of my life for almost ten years. The last 14 months have posed some unique challenges between recovering from Guillian Barre syndrome in late 2019, COVID shortened seasons, and my ongoing recovery from an ACL tear. Despite missing months of school, I have maintained a 3.8 GPA and I am determined to come back stronger than ever.
Although I have faced these challenges I remain confident in my abilities as a student and elite soccer player, and have demonstrated the resilience and composure to excel both in the classroom and on the field. I am eager to apply my leadership and character to draw the best out of my teammates and classmates. I am looking for a college that can challenge me athletically and academically, and am looking forward to becoming an asset to your program.
I am progressing well through PT and strength training and am on track for a return to the field in March/April, 2021. I am looking forward to meeting you.
