Corsicana — Steele signs soccer scholarship

Former Mildred student and Corsicana YMCA youth soccer player Kaitlin Steele recently signed a soccer scholarship with West Texas A&M. Steele was featured in an Odessa American story because her high school, Andrews, does not offer soccer. Steele still plays club level soccer all over Texas and the rest of the country, the American reported.

“I’m excited to get to continue playing because it’s been a part of my life for so long and I still want to do it,” Steele said in the story. “It means a lot to me.”

Steele is the daughter of Dale and Kim Steele. Her grandparents are W.T. and Jerry Gregory in Mildred. Steele went to school at Mildred from Kindergarten through fifth grade. She played soccer at the YMCA from 1999-2006, starting at 4 years old and playing through the end of 5th grade.

Steele has been playing club level soccer since Under-11. She has been an integral part of a team that progressed from the West Texas Premier league, into the Arlington League and currently plays in the Lake Highlands Classic League, one of the top girls’ youth soccer leagues in the country, said her former coach, Chris Payne. She also represented North Texas Youth soccer in the Olympic Development program, playing at the Region 3 tournament in Montevallo, Ala., Payne said.

Last summer, Kaitlin spent the summer playing for Western United in Massachusetts, in the United Soccer Leagues Super 20 Women’s Soccer Division. As just one of three high school players not in their senior year of high hchool or freshman year of college, Kaitlin got to train and compete with college players, according to Payne.
