LEWISBURG — Tri-County North senior Chelsey Strawser signed to play soccer at Defiance College on Friday, March 6.

Strawser started playing soccer at the age of seven. Strawser played soccer for Tri-County North Varsity girls soccer team for four years, during which she was the captain for two years. Her primary position is center back, but she also plays outside back.

“I’m really excited for college, I want to continue my soccer career and that’s my favorite part about high school. Being able to continue is going to be really fun,” she added.

Strawser has a 4.0 and has been a National Honor Society member for the last three years. She has been tied for first place in class ranking. She has been attending Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC), where she takes Sports Medicine.

Strawser will be majoring in Pre-Medicine. She hopes to one day become a neurosurgeon and plans to achieve a 3.5 GPA or higher in college.
