Kempsey product Chloe Rootes has made a name for herself as she helped lead the Tennessee Wesleyan Lady Bulldogs to the Appalachian Athletic Conference (AAC) regular season title.
Chloe, who started the season with a goal to be named Offensive Player of the Week at least once, received the honour on three occasions and was named Offensive Player of the Year in the AAC, besting off more than 300 talented players.
Despite the Bulldogs suffering defeat in the AAC Conference tournament championship game, the individual accolades continued to flow for Chloe.
The 21-year-old was selected into the AAC All Conference First Team, AAC All-Tournament Team and the AAC All-academic team.
The Kempsey Saints junior showcased her goal scoring and play making ability in tireless performances throughout the season.
In a standout year for the midfielder, Chloe dedicated the majority of her time to competing on the football pitch.
Between training and flying all over America on weekends to play her games and also juggling her study, Chloe didn't have much spare time.
However, she wouldn't have it any other way as football is her passion and she has a strong love for the sport.
Chloe developed her skills in her hometown and is proud to display them on the American stage.
Chloe's parents, John and Renea, are incredibly proud of her long list of accolades and do their best to catch as many games as possible.
"We both could not be prouder of what Chloe has gone on to achieve," Renea said.
"We both look forward to being able to watch most games live streamed on TV, technology is amazing, and it bring so much joy to be able to watch our girl play on the other side of the world."
Chloe is no stranger to competing overseas, as she has also played football in Germany and New Zealand in her teenage years.
