Josie Seebeck : Central Michigan University soccer player dies in crash. Meg Hart remembers the bus ride two years ago. It was a youth group trip to Madrid, Spain, and the first time she met Josie Seebeck.
She remembers their trips to Kaiserslautern, Germany, or “K-Town” as their group of friends called it, to watch soccer on TV.
She remembers all the Facebook messages, and texts. Phone calls, if she was lucky.
“When she was up at CMU, she was always busy with soccer training,” Hart said. “She was an amazing soccer player, CMU was so lucky to have her. She knew the game of soccer like the back of her hand.”
“Our hearts and prayers go out to Josie’s family, friends and teammates,” CMU Director of Athletics Dave Heeke said in the statement. “This is a tough, tragic time for our soccer student-athletes and the entire CMU Chippewa family.”
Seebeck graduated from Ramstein in 2012, completing an accomplished prep career in which she won the 2011 Stars and Stripes girls soccer Athlete of the Year award and led the Royals to the 2012 DODDS-Europe Division I championship.
The midfielder appeared in 14 games for the Division I Chippewas last season, recording one goal and one assist and earning Mid-American Conference All-Freshman honors.
