Carle Place senior Mellissa Duarte will be a member of the Holy Cross Division 1 soccer team starting in the fall of 2012.
CP soccer started nine years ago with only the last five years as a varsity team. Mellissa has been playing on the CP varsity team four out of the five years. In those four seasons, Mellissa has played a major part in the team’s success. In 2008 the girls made it to the county final 4, 2009 conference champions and 2010 the team made it to the county finals.
Mellissa has a high school career total of 17 goals and 11 assists. Over the past four years she has been awarded Offensive MVP twice (2010 and 2011), All Class (2010) and as a senior, All County, Conference player of the year and All State 1st team. As one of three captains, Mellissa has shown tremendous leadership on and off the field backed up by great technical skills and the ability to read the field well.
Congratulations to Mellissa and her parents for this great accomplishment.
