Cedartown High School’s Devin Mueller will most likely accomplish a lot on the soccer field this season playing for the Lady Bulldogs.
But before she steps foot onto a playing field for the first time as a senior, she has already accomplished a goal of hers. That is because on Monday in front of the media center at Cedartown High School, Mueller signed to play soccer at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville.
“It feels really good to sign,” Mueller said. “This is what I’ve been working for.”
Mueller, a Rome News-Tribune All-Area second team member last season as a junior, will enter college with a lot of experience playing against good competition.
“Devin has played for us the last three years,” Cedartown head coach Sam Noland said. “But she has also spent a lot of time playing on one of the top club teams in the state with a team out of Cobb county. She is a center midfielder, which is a very demanding position, but she plays it well.”
Noland said Mueller was someone he has enjoyed coaching.
“I’m pleased to have her on our team,” Noland added.
Mueller said she choose Georgia College for several reasons.
“I like the school and the coach,” Mueller said.
Georgia College competes in the Peach Belt Conference, as a Division II member. The Lady Bobcats will play against teams such as Columbus State, Clayton State, Armstrong Atlantic State and Young Harris, among others.
Mueller had several people she wanted to thank for helping her accomplish one of her goals in life.
“I want to thank my coach, coach Noland, and I want to thank my parents for all their help,” Mueller said.
Mueller, who is the daughter of Joseph and Paula Mueller, says she has not decided what she wants to major in yet.
