Few moments can define a player quite like the one Kait Seitter provided for Point Boro. Her winning goal captured the South Jersey Group II title for the Panthers in dramatic fashion. Yesterday, all that hard work that won her a state sectional title will now be going with her to Appalachian State University.
Her decision came with a lot of excitement, as she announced her commitment yesterday evening. After much thought, it was Appalachian State University that the Junior fell in love with. Seitter had quite a few options to choose from as East Carolina and Wingate were also among the potential suitors. Kait commented on her decision to attend the University. “I considered East Carolina and Wingate but as soon as I got to App State I knew it was the right fit for me. It’s one of those things were you just know as soon as you walk on the campus.” For Seitter, her choice came down to choosing a school where she could embrace both her soccer and academic career. Similar to the way success she has had at Point Boro, she hopes her college career will resemble similar characteristics.
Returning for her senior year, Kait Seitter knows that her and her team have the potential to make this season the best one yet. “It will be a big deal for all of us [ to get back to the group semi-finals] because it’s our senior year. It will be the end of the road for some, but all in all it will be the end of all of my grade playing together. That will be the hardest part because we have been playing together for so long. Winning would give us all a very good end to an even better era and it will give us all something to cherish. ” My personal goals are going to be to work to be even more fit and have even better skills because the game gets harder and faster once you get to the collegiate level “, Settier added.
Kait dedicated her commitment to the many role models that have made being a D-1 recruit a dream come true.”My role models are the people who I look up to and try to play like since I started watching soccer. From the professional stand point, Alex Morgan, Sydney Leroux, and Christie Rampone, were always my role models. However, my parents have always been really helpful with being there for me. Especially with the amount of camps I’ve gone to; trying to get into college and play at the highest level. They have been supportive through it all and are the reason I am where I am today.”
