Kate Richardson Award
Kate Richardson grew up in Jeffersonville playing soccer on CYS
and Nordic club teams. At LUHS, she and her teammates won 2
state titles and were runners-up to a third. She played soccer 2
years for UVM, then 2 years for Springfield College. After college,
she played semi-pro soccer for the Vermont Voltage, when they
had a W-league team. Kate was tragically killed by a drunk driver
in 2011 while biking to see a friend.
The award is given in memory of Kate, with input from coaches and teachers, to a graduating 6th grade girl and boy who exemplify the ideals of Cambridge Youth Soccer. Those ideals are:
-Positive Effort and Attitude -Soccer Knowledge and Skills -Leadership and Community Service
Winners this year receive a gift certificate to Sports Central in Essex Junction, and have their names engraved on a plaque, which is displayed on the walls of Cambridge Elementary School.
Congratulations to the winners of the
