Katie Wahl is heading into her Senior year of high school with her college future in place. Albion SC has helped match Katie’s desire to play college soccer at a high level with a top Division 1 program in North Carolina. After competing in the Las Vegas College Showcase and the Texas Shootout in Houston this year, Katie was presented with several offers from colleges across the country. Having just returned from visiting the campus of Coastal Carolina, Katie has decided to call Coastal Carolina home and has signed a National Letter of Intent to secure her college future.
Katie has been a player on the rise with the program and she really has not come into her own until the last few years here. We have always seen Katie’s potential standing 6’1" tall with a great physical presence on the field, but needed to refine her technical abilities. Katie has progressed extremely well with the program over the last few years and has drawn interest from many, many colleges and universities around the country including St. Marys, University of Chicago, Northwestern just to name a few. We are very excited to push Katie onto the next level and this next year will be a preparation year for her days ahead in college.
The club expects to be able to graduate nearly 100% of the GU18 Premier team off to the college level with some sort of scholarship in place for them. Last year’s graduates from this team include Morgan Keefe (Harvard University), Kelsey Griswold (Whitworth University), Alex Mc Lauglin (Cal State Northridge) and Casey Lockey (Cal State Fullerton). At the current time we have 3 players who have already committed with Devin Marshal going to Arizona State on a full scholarship, Brianna Chapman going to Cal State Fullerton on scholarship, and now Katie Wahl to Coastal Carolina on a full scholarship.
