For as long as she can remember, Caitlin Thibault has loved soccer. While in high school, she lived and breathed the sport! Thibault played for the Norwalk High School girls soccer team all four years of high school, despite battling injuries out on the field. Even while injured, the athlete maintained a fierce dedication to her team, who she actively supported at each and every game she was unable to participate in. Her injuries never slowed her down — not even during her so-called “down” time required for rest and rehabilitation. There’s no stopping Thibault or her passion for the sport of soccer, which she has loved so deeply since childhood. In the future, she hopes to take her passion for the sport to the next level by working as a soccer clinic or youth league coach.
