Amelia’s Westendorf to play soccer at Shawnee

Katherine “Kat” Westendorf has signed a college letter-of-intent to continue her education and soccer career at Shawnee State University, Portsmouth, Ohio. She will major in athletic training.

She was a four-year letter earner in soccer playing at center midfielder and striker. She also lettered in basketball. On the soccer field she was a three-time Fort Ancinet Valley Conference Buckeye and Cardinal Division all-star and an all-city selection. She was chosen by her soccer teammates as the Barons’ most valuable player and in basketball she earned the Courage Award.

“She is a hard worker and a leader off and on the field. She plays very solid,” said her soccer mentor Amy Kemmer.

Two soccer games stand out in her mind as highlights of her prep career. “My sophomore year I scored the only goal of the game when we beat Glen Este,” she said. Last year we beat Anderson 2-1 and I really enjoyed that.”
