Last Monday April 12, two Bradwell Institute Lady Tiger soccer players signed scholarships to play at South Georgia State College. Senior Lady Tigers Madison Steyer and Makayla Robinson signed their paperwork on Olvey Field among their teammates and families.
Steyer said she plans on majoring in Criminal Justice and minoring in Sociology. She said she fell in love with the campus after she attended a soccer camp there in November.
“I got to see the school, meet the players and coaches, and get a feel for what it would look like if I decided to go to SGSC, and I loved it there,” she said. “I am able to get my degree at a cheaper price than a bigger University. I’m closer to home, and I received a soccer scholarship.”
Robinson said receiving a scholarship solidified her decision to attend SGSC and likes that it is close to home.
“I also liked that it was a smaller college that way I could get used to the fresh start and not be stressed out by a bigger campus,” Robinson added.
Steyer said she will stay soccer ready by attending agility training with the basketball team, and summer workouts with the boys’ soccer team.
Robinson plans to earn a degree in Business Management.
Her strategy for staying in shape is to work out and train every day and eating a healthy diet.
“I’m planning to still play soccer this summer with my travel team, Savannah United,” Robinsons said. “That will still keep my legs fresh with playing soccer.”
Robinson’s biggest fan, her Mom Deborah said she hopes her daughter stays focused and keeps working hard while striving for her goals.
She said her daughter has an ambitious schedule before checking into college.
“Makayla is leaving for South Carolina in June to compete for regionals with her Savannah United Team,” she said. “If they win there they will go to the Nationals being held in Florida. All of this is before she starts college in August. It’s all been quite a ride.”
To date Robinson’s varsity career stats include playing in 50 games for 677 minutes, with 65 goals, 44 assists, 174 points and 33 corner kicks. Steyer’s varsity stats, to date, include 54 games, 759 minutes with 25 goals, 16 assists, 66 points and 6 corner kicks..
