Joined by family, teachers, coaches and friends, Spartanburg Day School senior Raegan Cash signed a national letter of intent Wednesday to play soccer at the collegiate level.
Raegan will join the Converse University Valkyries in the fall after being an integral part of the Griffin soccer program since the fifth grade. She has been a player on the varsity team for the last five years and has scored more than 30 goals for the Griffins. Last year, she was named All Region Player of the Year and helped lead the team to the semi-finals of the SCISA 2A state championship.
“Over the years it has been both a joy to watch her on the soccer field and a pleasure to coach her,” said Varsity Girls Soccer Coach Susan Noel. “Raegan brings a lot of passion and excitement to each and every game she plays. Most important about her is the respect she has for all of her teammates. With Raegan's skills and ability, I am convinced she will be a great addition to her new team. She will be missed here at SDS.”
A talented, multi-sport athlete, Raegan has also been a part of SDS’s basketball, volleyball and cross country programs. Away from athletics, she is an honor roll student, member of ASTRA (the Upper School’s girls’ service organization) and an ambassador for the Kicks for Cancer soccer game.
“My time at Spartanburg Day School has allowed me to become the person, student and athlete that I am today,” Raegan said. “The faculty and coaches have always encouraged me to give 100 percent and helped guide me to a college future I have always dreamed of.”
Athletic Director Joy Couch commented on Raegan’s many contributions to not only the Griffin Athletics program, but to the Spartanburg Day School community.
“Watching Raegan grow as a soccer player and leader on our campus has been a pleasure,” Couch said. “Seeing her dream of playing on the next level become a reality is something we hope every student can experience. Raegan has given so much to Griffin Athletics, and for that we are grateful and wish her the very best."
