Midway, Ky. – Midway University women's soccer coach, Sherrill Smith, continues to add to his recruiting class as he announced the signing of Kelsey Darrin earlier this week to bring his total to 16 for the 2017 recruiting class.
Darrin currently is a sophomore at Lake Tahoe Community College in South Lake Tahoe, California. When she arrives to Midway in August 2017 she will have two years of eligibility remaining.
"Kelsey is a versatile central midfielder who has the ability to dribble through defenders while looking for the open player," said Smith. "She possesses excellent balance and deception and is always a threat around the goal."
A two-year starter in a center midfield role, Darrin helped lead Lake Tahoe to its winningest season ever in 2016 while tying a program best mark with a second-place finish in the Golden Valley Conference.
Prior to spending her freshman and sophomore seasons at Lake Tahoe, Darrin was a standout for Summerville Union High School in Tuolumne County, California.
Darrin not only excels on the field, but also in the classroom. While at Summerville Union she won the Athletic Academic Award in 2014 and 2015.
At Lake Tahoe she won the Scholar-Athlete Award in 2016, the State of California Scholar-Athlete Award in 2016 and she also won the Dean's Choice Award in 2016.
Smith added, "Kelsey excels in the classroom and possess a very high character, she should be a natural fit in our system of play; I look forward to coaching Kelsey and seeing how she continues to grow as a student-athlete."
Darrin intends to major in liberal studies during her time at Midway.
