Emily Tran, a senior at The Potomac School, has committed to play Division III soccer for Wellesley College. “I wanted to play soccer at the collegiate level, but Wellesley’s academics were the key to my decision,” Tran says. “I’m thrilled to attend such an excellent liberal arts college.”

Tran was a varsity starter and standout forward at Potomac her freshman and senior years, helping the Panthers win an Independent School League A Division co-championship this past fall. During her sophomore and junior seasons, Tran played forward and midfield for FC Virginia, an elite women’s club soccer team; last year, the team qualified for the Elite Clubs National Playoffs. “Emily is a true leader and has a great work ethic,” notes Potomac Girls Soccer coach Claire Bordley. “She’s going to be a great addition to Wellesley’s soccer program.”

Tran is eager to bring her skills to a Wellesley team that finished 8-6-3 last season. “I was attracted to the team’s up-tempo style of play,” she says. “I’m looking forward to contributing next season.”
