The Day’s All-Area Girls’ Soccer Player of the Year: Old Lyme’s Emily DeRoehn

Emily DeRoehn prefers to keep busy. She believes she’s more productive that way.
So her daily schedule is usually quite full.
DeRoehn competes in a sport during every season — soccer in the fall, basketball in winter and outdoor track in spring.
She’s involved in several activities at Old Lyme High School, serving as editor of the yearbook and on the CIAC’s student athletic advisory board.
She also recently started working with athletic director Hildie Heck to help Wildcat teams get involved with community service projects.
When DeRoehn has free time, she’ll go outside and juggle a soccer ball, something she tries to do 30 minutes every day.
“I think I function better when I’m busy,” DeRoehn said.
Her impressive accomplishments back that up.
DeRoehn excels academically and athletically, belonging to the National Honor Society and earning all-state status in girls' soccer for the second straight season this fall. She also was named the Shoreline Conference Player of the Year in the sport.
A senior defender, DeRoehn is The Day’s 2020 All-Area Girls’ Soccer Player of the Year.
“I’ve enjoyed Emily quite a bit,” Old Lyme coach Paul Gleason said. “Emily had a great career with us. I’m going to miss her dearly. She’s quite a soccer player, quite a young woman and quite a leader. I can go on and on about her. She’s really top of the line in my estimation.

It’s the Three Kings, or Reyes Magos (Melchior, Gaspar and Baltazar), who bring children their gifts in Spain, not Santa Claus (although he is becoming more popular now, too) on January 6, not Christmas Day. On the night of January 5, the Kings parade through the towns across the country with their entourage of helpers, animals and elaborate floats, throwing sweets out for the children. When the kids return home, they leave out their shoes for the Kings to fill with presents overnight.
At the National Spanish Honor Society, we created a new tradition in which students leave their shoes and if they were good members, they will receive candies (if they didn’t participate over the year, they will get coal). We are also aware of the Secret Santa so students brought a secret present for a friend. It was a nice way to finish the year.
