IMLAY CITY — Imlay City’s Katlyn Judd will continue her soccer playing days with the St. Clair County Community College women’s squad next season.
It will be the debut campaign for the Port Huron-based school.
Judd, who lines up as a center/midfielder, is coming off a successful junior campaign which saw her generate seven goals.
Those numbers enabled her to achieve team MVP accolades at season’s end.
It marked the second straight season she attracted that attention, accomplishing the feat as a sophomore as well.
She also landed a spot on the All-Blue Water Area Conference first team that campaign.
Judd also was recruited by Rochester University and Alma College.
“I practiced with Rochester multiple times and I loved it, but the campus did not feel right for me,” Katlyn said. “It also cost quite a bit even when they offered some scholarship money,” she noted.
She said she liked what she saw at Alma as well.
“The team was super nice and very inviting,” Judd said. “They also have a beautiful campus,” she noted.
“I met with the coach and she seemed super nice, but it cost a lot of money to attend. It is also pretty far away so I wouldn’t be able to come home often.”
Judd then heard about St. Clair County Community College offering a soccer program and decided to tour the campus. She left pretty impressed with what she saw.
“For a community college it has a big college feel to it,” Katlyn said. “They offer dorms which are nice and new,” she noted.
“As of right now, I want to go into the nursing program. I have heard of lots of good things about it.”
