Cameron Castleberry, a forward for Ravenscroft's girls soccer team, announced her commitment earlier today to play at North Carolina.
Castleberry, who will be a junior this year, led Ravenscroft to the TISAC conference title. The Ravens also reached the NCISAA 3-A State championship before falling to Charlotte Latin. Castleberry led the team in scoring with 25 goals and 10 assists – including a goal in the state championship match – to receive selections to the All-Conference, All-Region and All-State teams. She was also named the 3-A Private School Player of the Year.
“Until now I have only dreamed about having the opportunity to play college soccer at an incredible school like Carolina,” Castleberry said in a statement. “I have always wanted to attend UNC, and I am thrilled to have the chance to play soccer at a school that has such great tradition and history.”
Castleberry participated in the U17 Women’s National Team training camp in Carson, Calif. earlier this summer, a program that helps identify future players for the U.S. Women’s National Team.
Castleberry will join Ravenscroft teammate Caroline Lindquist, who has also committed to North Carolina.
“I think that the UNC program will be a perfect place for her,” said coach J.J. Raabe said of Castleberry. “Cameron is a dynamic player with and without the ball and she will continue to grow as a player and teammate. She has been and will continue to be an impact player for Ravenscroft and I am selfishly excited because I will be able to continue to watch her make an impact close to home once she graduates.”
