Mika honored by Community TV
Stevie Michelle Mika, a Charles County resident, was one of four athletes to be acknowledged for her skill in girls soccer at a Jan. 24 event by Community TV in Prince George’s County. Each student was taken on set to establish a photo and profile of each of them and CTV is planning to use these profiles to follow these students as their career in sports blossoms. These profiles will be set up on the CTV website in the near future. Mika began playing soccer at age 7 1/2 with the La Plata youth team. She showed talent as a goalkeeper right from day one and has been a goalkeeper ever since. Last year, Mika attended Milton M. Somers Middle School and has up to then been educated in the schools in Charles County. Her talent as goalkeeper caught the interest of the Bishop McNamara High School’s sports department and Mika began attending McNamara, of Prince George’s County, for the 201617 school year. Mika, a freshman, is a straight A-plus student. Dave Mongey is McNamara’s head coach. Mika made the All-County team for fall sports in Prince George’s County. She was also named to All-Washington Catholic Athletic Conference second team, leading the conference in saves for fall 2016, and was named The Washington Post All-Met player of the week for her outstanding performance against Good Counsel. Mika plays for U-15 Maryland United travel team which plays in the Elite Club National League.
