Blaine Prescott is used to achieving goals, whether it’s scoring them on a soccer field or achieving them in life.
One of Prescott’s biggest goals recently came to fruition when the Washington High School senior accepted an offer to continue her academic and athletic career at Lees-McRae College.
Prescott, last year’s WDN Female Soccer Player of the Year, is having another solid year for the Pam Pack (6-5, 4-3 Coastal Conference). She has tallied 12 goals her senior season, coming after netting 32 her junior year and 26 as a sophomore.
Prescott, who wears No. 10 for Washington, is hoping her play will help the Lees-McRae Bobcats next year. The Bobcats, who play in the Conference Carolinas, went 5-15 during the fall season. The team also plays a limited number of games in the spring.
Pam Pack coach Jimmy Kozuch believes Prescott will have a solid college career.
Prescott, undecided as of yet on a major, proved earlier this year just how much a team player she is by accepting a new role. Primarily known as a scorer, Prescott was asked to help out on defense in recent games.
Teammate Xenia Adonts, an exchange student from Germany, said playing with Prescott has been enjoyable.
Prescott, the daughter of Tim and Darla Prescott, knows that playing college soccer will be a much bigger challenge.
Prescott is ready for the challenge.
