Haley graduated from Binghamton High School, her parents are Colleen and John Hutchings, she plans on attending St. Bonaventure University and major in Health and Fitness. Haley has been involved in school organizations and volunteers at various events held in Broome County. Haley is very well rounded being an athlete, involved in her school government, orchestra and all while managing to work outside of school as well. We are very lucky to have been able to be a part of this talented young lady’s life as she’s been playing soccer with our organization since she was very young and has developed into a great person! We will miss her here at GBFC but know that she will do wonderful things!
Paige graduated from Greene High School, her parents are Lorraine and Andrew Wilcox. Paige is going to Delaware State University and will be playing varsity soccer for their Divison 1 program with plans to study accounting. Paige has been with our program for 7 years and has been an outstanding athlete, very coachable, and always strives to be better. She always signed up for all of the optional training programs outside of just practicing with her team. We are proud of her accomplishments on the field and off of the field and wish Paige the best of luck with everything!
Larissa graduated from Seton High School, her parents are Lynne and Boris Yost. Larissa plans on attending Ithaca College in the fall. Another very well rounded individual, she was involved in chorus, theatre, soccer, and cheerleading. Even with her extensive school work load and extracurricular activities Larissa still managed to do extra training outside of just GBFC team practices. Larissa is a very bright and talented individual and we know she will be a great success!
Rosemary graduated from Susquehanna Valley, her parents are Michelle and Steve Zelenyak. Rosemary is going to SUNY Broome this fall and is going to study health sciences. On top of various athletic accomplishments Rosemary has done well academically and also was involved in other organizations like dollars for scholars, trick or treat for hunger and more within the community. Rosemary has only been with GBFC for a short period of time but with this time we have gotten to know her as a great player, wonderful student and amazing person. She volunteered at the Greater Binghamton Sports Complex for various events and never expected anything in return. She has been an asset to the GBFC U18 girls’ team this year and we are glad she is staying close to home so we can watch her play at SUNY Broome!
