Senior Sarah Baskey was motivated to play soccer at the age of four, like Brodman, by her brother and some of the others who had played in her town. Now, she is concluding her college career here at Edinboro as a crucial piece to the Fighting Scots women’s soccer team, the anchor of the defense and goalie. As she continues into her final semester of school, she will work to earn a degree in business with a concentration in accounting and finance. Baskey sported the number double zero for the Scots in her years here.

“[I will miss] the care free atmosphere and sunsets,” Baskey stated. She also mentioned that her time here at Edinboro means “everything” to her.

 She continued on what she’ll miss, listing, “Becoming my own person, finding out what I want to do with my life, and making my forever friends.”

“Make the most of it and don’t take any game or practice for granted because you’ll miss even the smallest things that your sport brings, and again it goes by faster than you can imagine,” Baskey stated when asked what advice she would give to current or future athletes at Edinboro. 

She continued: “Make the most of it because it goes by fast. Get involved in everything you can, and don’t give up easily.”

“Grateful,” is the one word Baskey used to describe her years as a student athlete. “I am very grateful to have had four seasons here, to have met all the people I have, to experience being a collegiate athlete, and to be able to play my first love for 18 years,” she said, concluding.

After graduation, Baskey plans to work for an accounting firm in Ohio. She thanks every person who has supported her throughout her years as a student athlete.
