Former #GCC standout Cartwright honored as HS Scholar All-American

Former Greensburg Central Catholic and Riverhounds Development Academy standout Bailey Cartwright was named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America High School Scholar All-America Team for the 2016-17 school year.

In Fall 2016, Cartwright capped an impressive high school career by obliterating WPIAL and PIAA records for goals scored (230) and assists (159).  Just as impressive in the classroom, Cartwright earned a 4.35 grade point average during her four years as a student at GCC.
Cartwright has already left to attend summer classes and begin off-season training with her new teammates at the University of Notre Dame.
