College Bound: Leah SchnellMarch 21, 2019
A Q&A with Jasper senior soccer standout Leah Schnell who will be playing collegiately at Lincoln Trail College.
What factors played into your decision to play soccer collegiately? The biggest (factor) into the decision was that I hated how my high school season ended and I couldn't see myself not playing soccer — I was always looking for what I could do next.
What stood out about Lincoln Trail over other colleges you visited or were interested in? I wanted something small and close to home and it's not far away. Every class is within walking distance so I won't have to go out in the cold a lot.
During your four years at Jasper, who or what most prepared you to play soccer in college? My cousin Jason was my travel coach when I was little and he always pushed me to be the best player that I could be, he really taught me a lot from his experiences.
What memories stick out the most during your time at Jasper? The Gibson Southern game (sectional semifinal, 2017) definitely had to be the biggest memory. Just from sitting the ball down and then looking up and seeing all my friends and teammates tackling me to the ground after I scored the goal, I just remember I was standing and then I ended up on the ground — it was really fun.
If you could describe your high school athletic experience in one word, what would it be? Fun.
