The Northshore Youth Soccer Association (NYSA) recently awarded its $1,000 college scholarships for 2012 to Inglemoor High graduates Rachael Grudt and Jacob Kavanagh.
Applications were accepted from graduating high-school seniors who planned to enter an accredited institution of higher learning during the 2012/2013 academic year. Two winners were selected based on their positive involvement and commitment to the NYSA program and the community, as well as their participation in the NYSA coaching, referee and other programs.
Having started playing soccer with NYSA from a very young age, Grudt and Kavanagh were honored for their outstanding contributions and success on the soccer field and in their academic achievements.
In addition to her play on the field, Grudt has earned both her U10 coaching certificate and her “E” license. A graduate of the international baccalaureate (IB) program at Inglemoor High, Grudt will attend Tuffs University in Boston next year with an intended major in chemical engineering.
Kavanagh participated in the referee program and volunteered as a youth coach for the association’s sponsored soccer camps. FC Alliance, the NYSA’s premier soccer club, named Kavanagh top male player of the year for the 2011/2012 season. He will be attending the University of Washington this fall.
