Mount Vernon senior Kate Cox signed her National Letter of Intent to play college soccer at Indiana State University Wednesday evening. Cox chose the Sycamores over Purdue, IUPUI, Western Kentucky, Central Michigan, and USI and will enter NCAA division I soccer ready to contribute in any way she can.
Soccer has always been a huge part of Cox’s life. She began playing the sport early in life and took to it nicely. Her athletic ability has always been something that has been noticed by many and at some point in her athletic career she has been a state champion in the sports of soccer, basketball, softball, and track.
Cox will leave Mount Vernon High School with 114 career goals which places her eighth on the all time scoring list in the State of Indiana. She also added 36 career assists to top off her great four years as a Wildcat. In addition to her High School career, Cox played on the Southwest Indiana Soccer Association team “Rush” and was a part of the Indiana Olympic Development State team.
Cox was highly recruited and was named to ESPN’s top 150 recruits of the class of 2013. She was named All Conference all four years at Mount Vernon and was named to the 2012 All State third team as well.
Cox chose Indiana State because of its closeness to home as well as other factors. “I chose Indiana State because it offered me a great place to get an education and because of its proximity to home,” Cox said. “I wanted to play soccer and felt comfortable with the coaching staff and players there. Everyone welcomed me and I felt like this was where I belonged.”
Cox is currently undecided as to her major but sees two alternatives. She either wants to become a Registered Dietician with a special focus on young people with eating disorders or satisfy her interest in creative design by studying packaging engineering. Whatever Cox decides to do everyone in Mount Vernon knows she will be successful.
