|Eclipse Select GK Emily Furmanek|
Eclipse Select Soccer Club goalkeeper Emily Furmanek (Orland Park, Ill.) is a fitting example of a competitive athlete within Eclipse’s dedicated base who plans on maintaining that drive alongside an ironclad academic and professional plan.
Furmanek recently graduated from Sandburg High School – playing in a regional championship on the day of her graduation – and she will now embark on her collegiate path at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wis. The Division III program competes in the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW), and representing the Lady Reds will go hand-in-hand with her occupational therapy major, which set Carthage apart in her search.
“I’ve been playing soccer forever,” Furmanek said. “It’s not going to be my career, but I also knew I wanted to play soccer in college. The occupational therapy program was a big point in going there. Soccer is always going to be a part of my life.”
