Marlena Stablein didn’t know what to expect when she stepped onto the field for her freshman season with the South Plantation High School girls’ soccer team.
She went on to develop into one of the top scorers in Broward County during her four-year high school career.
Stablein now is eager to take her talents to the next level. On Feb. 1, the South Plantation senior signed a letter of intent to play collegiate soccer at Florida International University in Miami.
Stablein, who was a standout at center midfield for the Paladins, will look to help the Panthers at the same position next year
Stablein has also been playing at the club level since age 12, improving her game with the Plantation Eagles.
