Chelsea Greene has just finished another successful football season with Montverde Academy in Orlando and contributed to an undefeated season.
The 17-year-old defender helped Montverde to 17 wins and one draw to win their high school league, and they recently won an invitational tournament too.
Now ranked in the top eight in Florida, Greene has been accepted to Southern Wesleyan University in South Carolina and will join her national teammate Brianna Hydes there next September.
Both have been captains of Cayman national teams.
Greene will graduate from Montverde in May.
Greene said, “The last three years at Montverde Academy has been rewarding both academically and especially soccer-wise.
“I was able to compete at a very high level as Florida has some of the best girls soccer. By doing this, I was able to get the exposure I wanted and just committed last week to Southern Wesleyan University.”
She added that she “couldn’t have done this without the support and guidance of my mother, Sue, and the experiences I gained from being a young player on the Cayman national team.”
Greene said that her football experience gave her a lot of confidence in making the decision to go away to high school and pursue her dream to play for an American university.
