Georgetown College women's soccer coach Leah Castleman signs Taylor High School standout Tara Joseph."I am very excited to add Tara to my 2010 roster as I believe she will make an immediate impact within our offense," Castleman said. "Tara's very solid technical abilities, as well as her strong work rate, are going to be a great addition to our line-up this fall."

Joseph, seated in the middle at right with Michelle Joseph and Barney Joseph, was a mid-fielder/forward combo for the Yellowjackets and was the leading scorer her junior and senior year. Also pictured are high school coach James Mercer and Castleman. She was the team captain her senior year and earned 1st team All City and 1st team All CHL League in 2009.

The Cincinnati Enquirer named Joseph to the Honorable Mention team and she was selected Division II team for the All-Star game. She netted the only goal in that game for Division II.

"Tara is an outstanding young woman," THS coach James Mercer said. "She has demonstrated those qualities both on- and off-the-field. Tara is a tenacious competitor that is a very dangerous threat to score at any time. She is almost always a marked player, but still finds a way to find the back of the net."

Her achievements do not stop on the soccer field; Joseph is an honor roll student with a 3.84 grade point average. She is also the student class vice president and active in several community service organizations.

"Her dedication to her academics and participation in other school activities are a testament to the qualities she possesses," Mercer said.
