Fine looks to score. She hopes to continue her success into college next year.

This month’s spotlight athlete Ali Fine ‘20 plays for the Blake Girls Varsity Soccer team, acting as a key member of the team both in spirit and in skill as one of their captains. She’s been playing soccer since she was 3 years old, and had always dreamed of being on a Division I team. 

She started off high school strong, in her freshman year leading the team’s goals with 16 during the season. At the close of the year, however, this dream was nearly crushed– in May, Fine was illegally tackled and taken down from behind and tore her ACL-Meniscus, an injury with a low chance of recovery, but she persevered. After recovering from her injury, Fine continues to play for Blake. 

Additionally, this summer she played for the Minnesota Thunder Academy, scoring the winning goal in her team’s championship game of the Gothia Cup in Sweden, the largest and most international youth soccer tournament in the world, with a total of 1700 teams from 80 different nations participating. 

Fine is also committed to the University of Wisconsin-Madison Division I Soccer program, and Fine aspires to “Win a Big 10 championship” in her future on the team. As for her goals for her last season at Blake, she hopes that the team gets to head to state. In her soccer career so far she’s most proud of “coming back and committing after [her] injury”, and she’s excited to take her soccer skills to the next level at UW Madison.
