Platteville,WI- UW-Platteville soccer player Corey Daehling has a lot on her plate. Already balancing academics and athletics, Daehling is also an Army medic.  Her military commtiment causes her to miss one weekend a month, but she hasn't had any problems handing the full schedule. She joined the Army National Guard the day after her 17th birthday, and she just re-signed for six more years.

"It just seemed like a good experience and I wanted to join as early as I could, so I have to miss school every once and a while but its do-able... and if they need an army medic I could get deployed at any time. I feel like I have worked harder since joining the military just in the not giving up aspect.

Platteville head coach Allison Sanyi-Stringer is impressed and encouraged by her player's dedication.

"For her to take this one while playing soccer, while going to school is huge and I think it shows a lot about her character."
