Champlain Valley Union senior Kate Raszka, the Burlington Free Press’ 2012 girls soccer player of the year, will continue her career at Middlebury College.
The standout midfielder confirmed Saturday that Middlebury College accepted her for early admission and that she’ll join the Panthers’ women’s soccer team next year.
Raszka led CVU to back-to-back Division I state championships. She tallied seven goals and seven assists as a senior, guiding the Redhawks to a 16-1-1 record and a win over previously undefeated Essex in the title game.
Middlebury is coming off a season in which it won the New England Small College Athletic Conference regular-season title and reached the second round of the NCAA Division III tournament.
