Mitchell Chooses Soccer

March 6, 2007

Albany -- It's never easy for high school athletes to decide where they want to attend college, but for Deerfield-Windsor senior Tracey Mitchell the decision was three-times as hard.

Tuesday Mitchell signed to play soccer at Armstrong Atlantic, but that wasn't her only option.

Besides being a stand-out goal-keeper on the Lady Knights soccer team, Mitchell also competed on both the basketball and softball teams at Deerfield.

Mitchell says she had offers to play multiple sports at other schools, but the soccer field at Armstrong Atlantic is the place she wanted to be.

"It's going to be tough," says Mitchell. "I'm going to miss all the other sports, but soccer is my favorite, so I'm glad I chose soccer. I'm looking forward to next year, playing at the next level. It'll be fun."

Armstrong Atlantic finishing 18-4 last year, playing for the Peach Belt Championship before losing in the opening round of the Division II tournament.
