WINONA LAKE – Two-time All-Conference goalkeeper Abby Schue has decided to stay close to home in her soccer career, committing to Grace College for the 2014 season.
Schue, who will be a senior for the Warsaw Tigers this fall, has been a part of three straight sectional championships in her first three years at Warsaw.
“I chose Grace because it has a great Christian atmosphere, and I feel like I can really grow in my faith while participating in the soccer program,” Schue said. “I hope to contribute as much as I can to the team’s effort of playing at the highest possible level.”
Schue led the Tigers to 10 shutouts during her junior season, earning All-Conference and All-District accolades in the process.
As a sophomore she was named the team’s Most Valuable Player after recording 14 shutouts.
“I am very pleased that Abby [Schue] is joining the Grace Soccer Family,” said Grace head coach Michael Voss. “Abby is an outstanding, technical goalkeeper with great range of motion. She will be a fantastic addition to the squad in soccer, academics and character. Abby has a super attitude and a teachable spirit. She is totally a Christ follower who will ‘ball it up for the Lord’ through her game.”
Schue was also a member of Warsaw’s track and field teams, competing in the high jump and throwing events. The Tigers have won sectional and regional titles in each of the past two seasons. Shue played club soccer for Elkhart County United.
Outside of the athletic realm, Schue has stayed involved in the community. She was selected for the Kosciusko County Youth Leadership Academy and also serves as a DARE role model.
Schue, who is the daughter of Denise Schue, plans to major in exercise science at Grace.
