Grimsby Soccer Heads to the NCAA Division 1
Paige Epp and Alyssa Abernot started out playing soccer together in the Town of Grimsby for the Grimsby Soccer Club. They have had many years of great successes together. When they joined the Stoney Creek Soccer Club they were able to secure a spot in the Ontario Cup Provincial Championships for three years in a row including winning the Provincial title in 2014 and then going on to win the Nationals undefeated in P.E.I. that same year.
Paige has just signed on with College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. She plans to take her degree in Architecture and continue her soccer career as a mid-fielder for the Crusaders.
Alyssa has signed a scholarship with the Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. She will be faced with many shots as a Falcon goalkeeper. Alyssa is taking a degree in Sports Management. Both girls are playing with the NCAA Division 1 schools, which is a big accomplishment.
We wish them both the best in their future endeavors as they have made Grimsby Secondary School proud.
