Gabby Tirard, a senior at Cheshire High School, is perseverance, perseverance, and humility. Combine that with her sheer talent and power, and her future holds endless possibilities.
After scoring 28 goals and 13 assists (61 career goals, 17 career assists) for Cheshire High School’s women’s soccer team this fall, Tillard earned High School All-American status. She led the Rams to her Southern Connecticut conference her tournament title and won the Most Valuable Player Award. The striker also helped the team reach the Class LL final.
Tirado’s senior year was a great success, considering her junior year came to an abrupt halt when she shattered a bone in her right tibia. In September, Tirard said her best sporting memories had little to do with her performances. I watched my team play Amity and after the game each Amity player came to me one by one and said something positive along with a high five. “
That says it all for a 17-year-old boy who will be attending preparatory school next fall, but his destination is yet to be decided.
Cheshire manager Kyrie McIntosh said, “This is the year that Gaby deserves.” …I can’t wait to see what the future holds for her.”
My wish for 2023 is that she find a college that meets her needs, both academically and athletically.
Her attitude should be rewarded. Wherever her preparation and college location are, their gains become everyone else’s losses.Her late grandfather, George Tirard of Waterbury, was a longtime Wilby High School coach and athletic coach of hers. As a director, I would have been very proud.
