Southmoore’s Megan Strotman – Academic Athlete of the Month Presented by Republic Bank & Trust

Senior Megan Strotman is a varsity soccer player at Southmoore High School where she is a member of the National Honor Society and a valuable member of the soccer team. Strotman and her teammates have high expectations for this season. 

“My expectations for this season are to make it to playoffs and always work hard to help the team,” said Strotman. “What I love most about my teammates is that they always work hard and never give up, even when we are losing. The best thing about being a student-athlete at SHS is the support from the students and faculty.”

This season the Lady Cats are off to a 6-3 start with big wins over Fort Smith Northside, Edmond Santa Fe, and Lawton. 

Strotman started her playing career at a young age and it’s the only sport she has ever played. 

“I started playing soccer when I was five years old and have only ever played soccer,” said Strotman. “I play attacking mid for my team.”

Academics play a large role in everyday life for Strotman. 

“My academics are very important to me. I have always studied and worked hard to excel in my classes,” said Strotman. “My plans after I graduate is to major in biology at Cameron University and then go to medical school.”

Strotman said her parents have always supported and pushed her to do her best. 

“My parents are a big influence in my life, they have always believed in me and pushed me to be the best version of myself that I can be,” said Strotman. 

In her free time, Strotman enjoys spending time with her dog, Buddy and hanging out with her friends.
