Meghan Mong-Kerwin, a forward, signed her National Letter of Intent to play soccer at Division III Virginia school, Emory and Henry College. Mong-Kerwin led the varsity team in goals, tallying 14 on the season. She helped take the girls soccer team to the State semifinals in 2019.

“Meghan will bring speed, versatility, and a determination to take the ball straight to goals,” said varsity soccer coach, Paige Pohopin. 

The E&H Wasps went 8-11-2 in the 2019 season and are coached by McCallie Winstead.

Mong-Kerwin will only be about 5 and a half hours away, but will be supported by her parents every step of the way.

“I am so excited for her, I’m going to miss her, but I know she is going to do great,” said Kemberle Mong-Kerwin.

Mong-Kerwin had other offers from a few Pennsylvania schools, but ultimately, Emory and Henry was the best fit for her. She loves the school atmosphere and how it felt right for her. She loves that it’s a more rural school, so everyone is very close and supportive.

She plans to major in chemistry with a little bit of biology and human anatomy. After college, she hopes to go to medical school to become a surgeon.

Mong-Kerwin feels club soccer as helped her prepare for her collegiate career providing higher competition, but still feels nervous because it is different from club and high school.

“However, it’s still the same game and I have to just keep doing what I know how to do. It’s still the game I love, just with a different jersey on,” said Mong-Kerwin.
