Sadie's Story...Playing soccer has always been a big part of my life; I have played since I was able to kick a ball. When it was time for me to choose a school, I knew that I needed to include soccer in my choice. Lee's McRae ended up being perfect. It has the classes that I want to take, the location is beautiful, and I'm able to play soccer.
