A Stettler girl with excellent soccer skills, and a provincial bronze medal recently won with a Red Deer team, has set her sights on a soccer scholarship that will provide her with a good college education in trades.

Terra Salmon has been playing soccer since she was qualified to play for the U10 team in Stettler and she has no intention of giving up the sport.

Speaking after she won her medal with the Red Deer Renegades U16 team in the provincial indoor soccer tournament last weekend, “I hope to advance in soccer,” said Terra.

A midfielder with apparently efficient play-making skills, Terra says she scored one goal in the penalty shoot-out at the end of the championship game.

“I will be playing for Red Deer Renegades again. I hope to get a scholarship.”

After playing for U10 and U12 teams in Stettler, Terra Salmon joined CASA United, then Red Deer Renegades, Red Deer United and then again Red Deer Renegades.

“I am the only girl in Stettler that plays (for the team) and that’s why my mom drives me to all the practices and games,” said Terra, which usually means three trips a week, two for practices and one for a game.

Despite the difficulties of having to shuttle three times every week, Terra says she has all the determination to go ahead and succeed in her goal of being a great soccer player.
