It's our 2018 edition of IN FOCUS that honors and takes a closer look at our seniors. In our first installment of Raptor IN FOCUS, we take a closer look at Senior defender Abigail White. We asked her some questions to get a better idea of who she is and what she's about. Here's what Abigail said…

How long have you been playing soccer?
What is your favorite position?
Center or outside back
What were/are your goals for this season?
What regular season game are you most looking forward to? Why?
Battle of the Woods or Franklin because they will be our hardest games.
Tell me about the most exciting sports experience you've had? An exciting game you participated in, watched, etc. (Doesn't have to be Ravenwood)
I recently just watched the RHS vs CHS football game and saw our comeback, it was awesome.
What are your plans after high school?
Not really sure yet, I will most likely go to UTK and study Medicine.
If your plans include college, have you decided on where you are going or at least narrowed it down?
University of Tennessee at Knoxville or University of Mississippi.
Why have you selected this college/colleges?
I have been to both and I like them a lot. I grew up a Tennessee fan.
Do you plan on playing soccer beyond high school? Are you pursuing other interests (music, art, business, medicine, etc)?
Recently I have decided not to play in college, but I'm planning on studying medicine.
Who's your favorite teacher? Why is he/she your favorite?
Mr. Caminiti because he is so personal and a great teacher. I can tell he is really interested in me and other students.
Do you have any mentors or anyone in your life you really look up to? Why?
My Mom because she always knows the right thing to do and she helps me with everything.
Tell us about your accomplishments you are most proud of?
After my ankle surgery, I worked very hard to get back to playing soccer. I am proud of how much time and effort I put into it.
Tell us about your parents/family? What they mean to you? What they do for a living? Anything else you want to share...
My Mom and Dad mean the world to me and I love my family so much. I don't know what I would do without them. My Dad is a district sales manager for a pharmaceutical company, and my Mom is a marketing in training manager for a small business.
When you see our seniors, please thank them for their years of dedication and commitment to the Lady Raptor soccer program. We appreciate you!
