My name is Kelsey Geary and I grew up in a small upstate New York town called Ogdensburg, which is located on the St. Lawrence river across from Prescott, Ontario. I received a Bachelor’s of Science in Education (K-12 for Physical Education) from the State University of New York @ Cortland in 2006. In addition, I have a Master’s in Administration and Supervision from the University of Phoenix in 2012. Throughout my undergrad I played soccer all 4 years. I started in 76 of my 78 games and had a combined total of 13 goals and 25 assists for a total of 51 points. I led my team to the SUNYAC tournament all four years and lost in the championship game to Oneonta my last two. I am tied for the 20th in career scoring and 4th in career assists at SUNY Cortland. My career team record while at SUNY Cortland was 39-35-5. I was also a captain my junior and senior year. I have received many personal accolades as well such as SUNY Cortland Female Athlete of the Week, All-SUNYAC Conference, All-SUNYAC Tournament team, All-State and was nominated for Female Athlete of the Year.
