Maddie Cunningham was the star senior goalkeeper in the girls varsity team and has been a huge asset to soccer in her high school career. She played a huge role in the girls’ 3A State Championship win in November. When the game came down to penalty kicks, she kept her composure as she made crucial saves to secure the trophy.

Maddie has been playing soccer for 12 years and is excited to play at the collegiate level.

“I’m definitely a little nervous to play at a higher level, so I’ll have to step up my game in order to keep up with the competition,” said Cunningham.

Following an average 2017 season at 9-7-2, Maddie’s addition to the Bullets will hopefully spark some new life into their program next year.

“I’m excited for the opportunity Maddie is getting. I know I’ll miss her, but I’m relieved that I will get to see her soccer games at Gettysburg,” said Frank Cunningham.

When deciding which college to attend, Maddie wanted a balance of being close to home and be in a challenging soccer program. Gettysburg was the perfect fit.

“Maddie has the most important thing that a goalkeeper needs, which is a short memory. When things don’t go well for a goalkeeper, everybody sees it, but she always has the ability to jump back up and be the best that she can be within seconds,” said Coach Howie Putterman.
