Cornerstone University welcomes Tara Grasman to the Women's Soccer Program. Tara Grasman from Caledonia, Mich. has signed a letter of intent to play soccer at Cornerstone beginning in the fall of 2011.
Tara attends South Christian High School and has played varsity soccer for the past 3 years and will be a captain for her team this season. Over her high school career she has received (Most Improved Player and MVP) for her team. She was voted All-District, All-Regional, All-Area, and Third team All-State over the course of her career.
Tara is also a good student and has been named to the school Honor Roll several times in high school. I addition to her academic work, Tara has been very involved in extracurricular activities. She served as a peer tutor at school for the past three years. She has been a SERVE team host member for the past three years. She served as a soccer referee and volunteered at an afterschool program called the Dock Student Ministries. She has occasionally served on our church praise team and is a member of Friendship Christian Reformed Church.
"I think Tara has a lot of potential as a GK. She has not played GK for that long but she has great instincts for the position. I also think that she is a great fit for our team and will contribute in a lot of ways to the team. I don't have any doubts that she will work very hard and will become a very good GK for us. She will certainly be able to come in and compete for the starting position."
Why she chose Cornerstone
"I have decided to come to Cornerstone and play on the Women's Soccer Team for many different reasons. I know I wanted to play soccer in college, so that was a big part of determining where I would go. I also feel like Cornerstone is a really good fit for me, everyone is so nice and inviting, I never once felt intimidated or not wanted when I played with the team. The girls seem great and the coaches are great too. I definitely feel like I will grow as a person, not only on the field but off the field too. I know my coaches are going to push me to reach my full potential on the field and I also know I'm going to be pushed to reach my full potential off the field, in the classroom and in my spiritual walk with Christ."
Tara is the daughter of Ric & Deb Grasman of Caledonia, Mich..
