PRLog - Mar. 5, 2014 - FERNDALE-, Mich. -- Rachel Sherman, of Ferndale and a senior at Bishop Foley Catholic High School, in Madison Heights, has signed a letter of intent to attend Siena Heights University in 2014, as a member of the Siena Heights Saints women’s soccer team.

Rachel is a four-year varsity starter for the Bishop Foley Ventures girls’ soccer team, and is a member of the Michigan Gators F.C., part of the Premier Soccer Group. She plays both defense and forward.

As a member of the Bishop Foley Ventures, and playing primarily defense, Rachel made a significant contribution to the team winning the 2011 MHSAA Division 4 Championship, the school’s 12th  championship in girls’ soccer overall. Her individual MHSAA honors include:

·         2011, 2012, 2013 All-District

·         2012 All-League

·         2013 All-Catholic League

·         2012, 2013 All-Region

·         2013 All-State, 1st Team

In addition to her soccer achievements, Rachel as maintained a record of academic excellence as well, named to the Bishop Foley Honor Roll during all four years of her attendance there.

Rachel has not yet decided upon a college major, but she is clear about her reasons for choosing Siena Heights. “The size of the school, I wanted a smaller school with smaller class sizes. And it’s close to home, so I can stay connected with my family. That’s important to me.”

She also was impressed with the Siena Heights athletic program overall, adding, “I liked Coach Oliver (SHU Head Coach Scott Oliver), and the new facilities. And they have a football team – I love to watch college football games!”

“Rachel definitely has the ‘wow factor’ when she is on the soccer field,” Coach Oliver said. “She can stand out in technically ability, tactile awareness, and athleticism. I really think she will be an excellent addition to our program, as she will become one of the best defenders in our conference.”
