Viso Named Gatorade Louisiana Girls Soccer Player of the Year

CLEMSON, S.C. – Incoming freshman Audrey Viso has been named the 2016-17 Gatorade Louisiana Girls Soccer Player of the Year, as announced by The Gatorade Company on June 19. The award, which recognizes individuals who demonstrate outstanding athletic ability, a high level of academic achievement and exemplary character both on and off the field, distinguishes Viso as the best high school girls soccer player in the state of Louisiana.

Viso, a midfielder from Baton Rouge, La., scored six goals and tallied eight assists for St. Joseph’s Academy in 2016-17, leading the Red Stickers to the Division I quarterfinals. She was also named Division I Offensive Player of the Year, District MVP and All-Metro MVP and was the Most Valuable Player of the state All-Star game in 2016-17.

A standout in the classroom as well, Viso earned a weighted 4.05 grade point average in high school. She also participated in volunteer work with the Special Olympics and other local community projects.

Viso is the second Gatorade State Girls Soccer Player of the Year for Head Coach Eddie Radwanski’s Tigers in the past two years, as current sophomore Julie Mackin earned the distinction for the state of Colorado in 2015-16. Viso starts classes at Clemson on June 28 for the second summer academic session, and the Tiger begins training in August for the 2017 season.
