Emily Agejew, a 2022 high school graduate who attended Davie County schools through eighth grade before transferring to Bishop McGuinness, was named to the all-region team in soccer.

Agejew, who was the goalkeeper for Ellis Middle in the seventh and eighth grades, was a team captain for the Villains, who finished the 2022 season ranked third in the final Western North Carolina 1-A poll with an 18-5 record. She was a four-year varsity goalie  at Bishop who was all-conference and all-region as a junior. She was the goalie of the year as a junior at both the conference and region level.

She played club soccer for NC Fusion, and she was a member of the championship team in the State Games in the summer of 2021.

“Emily (4.46 weighted GPA) was primarily our second goalkeeper her first two years, but her play as a junior and senior had a huge positive impact on the success of our team,” said former Bishop coach Ray Alley, a 40-year member of the United Soccer Coaches Association. “Emily provided strong team leadership as a senior. The recognition she has received after her senior season is well deserved.”

Later this month, Agejew will enroll at the University of Tennessee.
