"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..
