Girls Varsity Soccer · Senior Spotlight: Jeydi Pelae #19

In light of the spring sports season being cut short, we are honoring our senior athletes by spotlighting one senior athlete per day. Day 15 spotlights Jeydi Pelae.

Jeydi plays defense and is the only senior for the Patriot Girls Varsity Soccer team. In the fall she plans on attending the University of Georgia and major in political science. “Playing soccer has always been a part of my life. Everyone in my family plays it. I grew up loving the sport. I play on travel teams and that’s fun but playing on the Powdersville soccer team has been one of the most amazing experiences. All of the girls on the team have been playing together for a very long time, to the point where we are like a family. That is what I love about the sport. You build relationships with your teammates on the field that are unbreakable and you learn how to depend on each other. Playing soccer has given me so many amazing memories that I will never forget. It definitely has been the highlight of my high school experience.”
