Messer on watch list for High School Soccer All-American GameWindjammer senior lone player on prestigious list from Pine Tree State
Rockport — For four years, Camden Hills senior Charlotte Messer has been on the short list of the state’s most talented girls soccer players.
Now, the 18-year-old Rockport resident has started to draw additional attention outside the Pine Tree State.
Messer is one of a handful of players being scouted to participate in the High School Soccer All-American Game on Saturday, Dec. 3 at 2 p.m. in Raleigh, N.C.
Of the 83 players on the East watch list, Messer is the only one from Maine. Decisions on which players will play in the prestigious game will be determined at the conclusion of the regular season.
Through the first 12 games of her senior pitch campaign, Messer has tallied 16 goals and 12 assists, while she has tallied 57 goals and 45 assists during her high school career.
While her senior year thus far has been impressive, Messer was chosen as a potential player for the All-American game due to her play on the high school pitch last year, in addition to her ranking on Seacoast United, a team in the U17 Elite Premier League.
Camden Hills coach Meredith Messer, also Charlotte’s mother, said her daughter has been scouted by Division I collegiate soccer programs, including the University of New Hampshire, University of Massachusetts-Lowell and the University of Maine at Orono.
Messer was named Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B first-team all-conference her freshman and sophomore seasons, and followed suit with a league Class A nomination her junior year when the Windjammers were bumped to Class A.
Messer made All-State in Class B as a sophomore and All-State in Class A as a junior. She also is a two-time Courier Publications/VillageSoup schoolgirl athlete of the year finalist.
