Somewhere locked inside Gigi Day, the 17-year-old fierce competitor, is the spunky girl who fell in love with the game of soccer because it was fun.
It’s a love that has grown strong over the years and helped Day become one of
the premier prep stars in the region.
“I grew up in New York City, so I would say my earliest memory of playing soccer was when I was 5 or 4 in Central Park in one of those little leagues where they have the crazy team names like the Red Flaming Dragons,” Day said. “We were guaranteed a trophy no matter what.”
