For many, simply playing college soccer is a dream that players strive and work for. Courtney Conner is a testament to that – realizing her dream of collegiate soccer in her hometown.
Always a hard-worker and intensely loyal, Conner joined Gaston United as a fifth grader as a recreational player – playing every position. But she’d eventually find her home between the goal posts as a goalkeeper.
Conner’s soccer journey – at least the club portion – has ended, but her signing at Belmont Abbey College marks a new chapter.
