PERRYVILLE, Md. — Maddie Carr was born to be an athlete.
“Soccer and lacrosse are just like second nature to me,” said the Perryville High School senior.
She was also born to be a leader.
“I try to help girls whenever they need it. Just the little things.”
The lacrosse and soccer standout is dedicated too.
“Every weekend I come here to the high school turf. At the end of the day it shows who puts in the extra work. I want to be that person,” Carr said.
“She’s running miles and she’s doing wall ball and she’s practicing her skills,” said Perryville Assistant Girls Lacrosse Coach Matt Borrelli. “Sometimes people think that things come easy for Maddie but I know that she really puts in countless hours of work.”
Her main sport is soccer.
“When she’s on the field, she just stands out among her peers just with her leadership on the field and her vision and the way that she’s able to read a play before it happens,” added Borrelli.
The four-year varsity star for the Panthers also plays for Premier Soccer Club. She’s the top goal scorer in the Eastern region. This fall she’ll be playing soccer for Towson University.
“Going there, it was just a different feeling going from all the other colleges I went to,” said Carr. “Just watching them play, it’s just fantastic.”
She’ll be one of those fantastic Tigers soon.
Off the field she wants to study business and marketing. She’s challenging herself in the classroom now.
“Classes here I take are honors classes, college classes,” she said.
“Maddie can achieve anything she wants to in life. Four years at Towson, she’s going to do awesome there. I’m sure,” said Borrelli.
