For Maddie Olson, soccer is her life. And her sporting life will continue for another four years.
Earlier this month, the Greenbrier High School senior signed to play at Lees-McRae, a private school in Banner Elk, N.C. Lees-McRae is an NCAA Division II member in the Conference Carolinas.
"It's exciting," she said. "I really like the campus and the team a lot."
Olson began playing soccer in kindergarten. She played some basketball as a youth, but soccer has always been her main sport. From seventh grade on, Olson began focusing solely on soccer.
