Corydon Central High School senior Camdyn Oberholtzer recently signed a National Letter of Intent to continue her academic and athletic career. Oberholtzer, who participated in soccer, basketball and track, signed her National Letter of Intent to play soccer at Tiffin University on Dec. 3. Aside from Tiffin, Oberholtzer, the daughter of Brady and Rebecca Oberholtzer, was also in active talks with Anderson and Lakeland universities.
Serving as the starting right-back on defense, Oberholtzer aided the Lady Panthers’ soccer team in its journey to one of its best seasons in the past decade, posting a 9-3 record (5-1 MSC) before falling to MSC champion Silver Creek in the sectional semifinals.
There were a number of factors in Oberholtzer choosing Tiffin over Lakeland and Anderson, the top being the Dragons being the only school of the three to offer a scholarship.
“Tiffin is Division II, so scholarships were available,” Oberholtzer said. “The other schools I was talking to were D3 and couldn’t offer that.”
“Tiffin also has a School of Criminal Justice, with lots of directions to go inside of that major, so I’m excited about that,” she added.
Despite having to move to a university that’s about an hour away from Toledo, Ohio, the transition may not be as hard for Oberholtzer due to similarities the town of Tiffin has to her hometown of Corydon, including a historic downtown area.
The Dragons recently finished a 5-11-1 campaign, including going 5-8-1 in Great Midwest Athletic Conference play. Their season ended by falling just short of a spot in the six-team GMAC Tournament.
