Erica Correa - (September 2010)
University of New Hampshire


Erica Correa, a Cheshire High School class of 2010 graduate, has been playing soccer for as long as she can remember. She started when she was six and has loved every minute of it. She immediately gravitated towards goal keeper and has never looked back. "There is nothing like the challenge of stopping an oncoming player, and nothing better than picking up your teammates with a big save," Erica recently commented.

As a soccer player at Cheshire High School, Erica was a four year letter winner, ALL-SCC Conference and CT All-State. She was also selected to play on the Senior All-Star game in 2009. Her Cheshire career stats, 60-13-5 with 39 shutouts, are certainly something to be proud of.

Now in her freshman year at The University of New Hampshire, she is in the goal and helping UNH's women's soccer team get off to the program's strongest start (1-0-2) since 2001. That was also the last time that the Wildcats claimed the TD Bank Classic Championship. Erica made a career-high eight saves during this season's TD Bank Classic Championship, as UNH tied Rider University (1-1). UNH then defeated La Salle University (2-1) to go on to win the Classic Championship. Correa was named Defensive MVP, recording 13 saves. She was also named on the All-Tournament team.

Soccer has taught Erica that hard work will lead to success. Hard work helped her excel in the classroom too as she finished high school with High Honors, was a member of the National Honor Society and was selected as the 2009 NCAA Scholar Athlete for girls soccer. She is currently enrolled at The University of New Hampshire's Whittemore School of Business.

Training with Future Fitness for the past six years has helped Erica achieve her goals, one of which was to play college soccer. The commitment, dedication and hard work are some of her key traits that have helped her make the big saves in games throughout her soccer career. We know Erica will continue her college career making save after save. We wish her much success!
