Sienna Collins

WESTFIELD — NorthLake Family Recreation Center will be the site for the Southern Tier All-Star Classic soccer match on Saturday, June 11 at its 16-acre sports complex at 38 Nichols Ave. in the village.

The event will feature 44 of the finest female high school players from Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Allegany, and Steuben counties as recognized by the area coaches following the 2021 season.

Players from the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Athletic Association will comprise the Western Division team while players from Allegany and Steuben conferences will comprise the Eastern Division team.

The next player profiled is Sienna Collins of the Western Division team. Below are highlights from her soccer resume:

THE COLLINS FILE

Sienna will graduate from Chautauqua Lake Central School in June and continue her education at SUNY Brockport in the fall, majoring in physical education. She credits Amanda Grack and Jenna Clauson for inspiring her to become a gym teacher.

Sienna started her soccer career at age 6, playing youth soccer and travel soccer with Coach Jeff Zarpentine and Northwest Soccer Club. Modified soccer at CLCS in seventh grade saw her starting at striker until ninth grade when she moved to varsity and assumed the sweeper position where she has been ever since. Rarely leaving the pitch, Sienna’s speed, quickness and dependability have resulted in a high level of respect from everyone involved with Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Athletic Association soccer.

Numerous shutouts have resulted from her “flawless back line commanding and keeping other teams from any Grade A scoring” as stated by The Post-Journal. A First Team All-Star in 2020 and 2021 and a Post-Journal All-Star in 2021, Sienna has inspired teammates helping them on and off the field as she used her leadership and communication skills serving as captain of the Thunderbirds her senior year.

Also playing indoor at the Lakewood YMCA for five years (three with Maple Grove) as well as indoor tournaments with Northwest Wave, Sienna is grateful for her soccer career and the many new friends and family it has brought her.
