Six Central players moving on

Six Pickerington High School Central girls soccer players made their college selections official Feb. 5.

Signing letters of intent were Darby Burch (Malone College), Rachel Koch (Marshall), Samantha Oberdorf (Tiffin), Emma Safranek (South Carolina-Upstate) and Casidy Simonis (Carson-Newman). Also, Nicole Karavakis committed to Wittenberg.

Oberdorf, a forward, scored eight goals last season for the Tigers, who went 10-6-1 overall and 5-2 in the OCC-Ohio Division.

Karavakis, a defender and four-year letterwinner who missed her junior season with a torn ACL, was a first-team all-league honoree last year.

Safranek, a defender, and Simonis, a midfielder, were named second-team all-league. Koch, a midfielder, was named special mention all-league.

Burch, Koch and Simonis were among 22 players from the Crew Youth Development program to sign letters of intent last week.
