Michela Paradiso made it easy on the ThisWeek Community Newspapers sports staff the past three seasons.

The Upper Arlington High School girls soccer standout earned three consecutive Super 12 captain honors, but entering this season, she was one of five Golden Bears players who opted to play for the Ohio Premier Girls Soccer Club team.

"It was a really, really hard decision and it was hard to say goodbye," Paradiso told ThisWeek in August. Next fall, Paradiso will play at Ohio State.
