Mortelliti headed to Arcadia University
HAMMONTON—Madi Mortelliti, a senior at Hammonton High School, announced that she will continue her soccer career at Arcadia University.
Mortelliti, a four-year starter and two-time captain for Hammonton, was a first-team All-Cape Atlantic League selection last season, scoring five goals to help the Blue Devils finish at 5-5.
In addition to her success on the soccer field, Mortelliti is ranked fifth in Hammonton’s Class of 2021, carries a 5.848 grade point average and has been the class president for four years.
“When choosing a college, I wanted a university that had strong academics and a competitive soccer team. Arcadia was the perfect fit. They have a direct admit physician assistant program and their soccer team made the NCAA Division III tournament the last four years,” Mortelliti said.
The senior is excited about her decision and eager to be back on the field next fall.
“I am excited to work hard and play at the next level. I’m hopeful that I will see the field during my freshman year,” she said.
Mortelliti is proud of her accomplishments both athletically and academically at Hammonton. A member of the National Honor Society, she has also participated in several clubs at HHS, and says she has “no regrets” about her time in high school and thanked her family and coaches for contributing to her success.
“I want to thank my parents for being my biggest fans,” Moretlliti said.
“They inspire me to have an impact on and off the field. Rain or shine, you can find them on the sidelines cheering me on. My coach from SJEB [South Jersey Elite Barons], Jeff Zoyac, is relentless in pushing me to my full potential. My high school coaches, Ashley Koester, Taylor Downey, Krista Verzi and Carly Sidone, taught me that leadership and hard work pay off. I am excited for my next chapter,” Mortelliti said.
