Wilson, N.C. — One of the eight seniors on this year’s state Class A champion Camden Hills Regional High School girls soccer team is heading south.

Midfielder Kassie Krul, who helped the Windjammers win three straight state titles, signed her national letter of intent to attend Barton College — a Division II school — where she will be part of the Bulldog women’s soccer team.

She signed her NLI over Thanksgiving break.

“Kassie has been an exemplary, well-rounded student-athlete during her time here at Camden Hills,” said athletic director Steve Alex. “When she graduates in June, she will have earned 13 varsity letters and played a significant role in our girls soccer teams three state championships. She is a student council and Peers member and has recently been selected as the recipient of the CHRHS Principal's Award.”

Krul is a standout three-sport athlete at Camden Hills and also plays basketball and tennis for the Windjammers. In her four-year pitch career, she compiled a whopping 50 goals and 40 assists.

“I’m really thankful for everyone who has helped me get to where I am,” said Krul. “It’s beyond rewarding knowing that all of my time and work has paid off. It’s going to be quite the adjustment, especially being so far from home, but I’m really looking forward to starting this new chapter.”

Krul netted 16 goals and added 10 assists as a senior for Camden Hills and was named Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference first team all-conference. She also scored two of the team’s three goals in last year’s 3-2 state championship victory over Scarborough.

“I never imagined leaving Maine, but I expanded my options to outside New England for better soccer and more athletic scholarships," she said. "College showcase tournaments really pay off, especially if your ability matches a certain coach’s style of play. It ended up working out really well for me once I actually went there and realized it’s going to be a great fit for me.”

Krul, the daughter of Tammy and Robbie Krul, is undecided on a major, but said she likely will choose business administration or sports management.
