New Richmond’s Erin Lusk will continue education and soccer career at Coastal Carolina University

Erin Lusk, New Richmond High School senior and a star of the Lions’ varsity girls soccer team for the past four seasons, has recently signed a letter-of-intent to continue her education and soccer career at Coastal Carolina University.

Lusk earned four varsity letters while playing for the Red and Black. In addition to her stellar career on the soccer field, she also lettered in swimming. Her skills in soccer earned her berths on the Southern Buckeye Conference American (SBC-A) Division all-star squad.

She also earned awards from her school for being the offensive player of the year and the leading scorer.

An honor student with a 3.29 grade point average, she decided to attend the Conway, South Carolina, university because “I want to major in marine biology and science and they have a very good program there for them.”

Coastal Carolina also has a good women’s soccer program. A member of the Big South Conference, the Lady Chanticleers achieved a record of 13-6-1 last year.
