Making the Cut – Colleen Dempsey

by Drew Patrick - July 31, 2015

Women’s Soccer is one of the most popular sports in United State’s high schools. However, only 7% of high school women’s soccer players compete at the next level. Mansfield’s Colleen Dempsey beat those odds.

Dempsey is a 2010 graduate of Mansfield High School, who stayed close to home and attended Mansfield University where she recently finished her final season as a Lady Mountee. Dempsey was a four-sport athlete at Mansfield High School and was recruited to Mansfield University for track. There were a number of reasons for Dempsey’s choice to play soccer. Injuries plagued Dempsey throughout her high school track career, and she grew up playing soccer with her family. These factors, along with a soccer coach father, led to her decision to put on the college cleats. She played in 64 career games and started 44 of those games at defense and midfield. She was also selected as team captain her Junior and Senior year.

Academics were a huge part of Dempsey’s career as she was a PSAC Scholar Athlete and a Mansfield University Scholar Athlete multiple times. Her academic and athletic accomplishments have led to her being selected as assistant director of athletic communications at Sage Colleges. Sage, (a recipient of an NCAA Women and Minority Grant,) selected Dempsey after a national search and she will start her new role on August 1 of this year. The job consists of public relations work for the athletic department – (including running the website, shooting video, social media updates, and statistics.)
