Junior Sarah Edmonds Commits to Murray State University

Monday, March 20, 2023

Congratulations to Academy junior, Sarah Edmonds, for verbally committing to further her education and soccer career at Division One Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky. Sarah, a standout on the soccer pitch for the Burris Owls Girls soccer team, was named a finalist for MaxPrep athlete of the week, scored a total of 18 goals and dished out 28 assists this season, and led the Owls to a historic 15-1 record that consisted of 12 shutouts and a 3-1 sectional championship victory over her former school, Wapahani at Triton Central High School. “I was aware Sarah was being recruited by several Division One schools but didn’t fully understand the extent of her talents on the soccer field until catching a game last Fall,” says Dr. Joel Olufowote, Director of Academic Affairs. “Sarah’s accomplishments playing soccer further highlight the fallacy that high level athletic competition at an institution like the Academy is unachievable.” Dr. Olufowote continues to say, “despite our clear academic identity, we want our students to be well-rounded with multiple passions. I’m grateful for Sarah’s example and for her agility in both the classroom and the soccer pitch.”
