Kasey Gamble may have taken her considerable ‘game’ to the Sunshine State. But her roots will always be in Lebanon.
Gamble, a native of Lebanon and a resident of Sarasota, Florida, recently signed a national letter-of-intent to play Division One women’s soccer at Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Gamble chose Southern University over a number of other Division One programs, following a distinguished playing career as a forward at Riverview High School in Sarasota.
Gamble was a four-year starter and most valuable player at Riverview, after competing in the sport all over the state of Florida. Gamble plans to major in pre-law at Southern University.
In addition to her soccer pursuits, Gamble also enrolled in the State College of Florida during her scholastic senior year, interned at a local law firm and volunteered with Southeastern Guide Dogs.
But Gamble honed her soccer skills in Lebanon, most notably beginning at the age of four, as part of the Lebanon Valley YMCA’s Mighty Mites program. Later, she also competed in the Northern Lebanon Soccer Club, before moving to Florida at the age of ten.
Gamble is the daughter of Darlene and Stu Gamble. For her accomplishments, Gamble will feted at a June celebration that will also include her extended family and friends from Lebanon.
