The "Cobra Spotlight" is a weekly highlight of a student-athlete at Coker College. Each week we take a different athlete from a different sport and display some facets to get more familiar with them. This week we take a look at Cassandra Ordonez, a member of the women’s soccer team.
Name: Cassandra Ordonez
Sport: Women’s soccer
Hometown: Palmetto, FL
Major: Biology with a pre-medical concentration, and a minor in sociology
Why did you choose Coker? I chose Coker for two reasons: the soccer team and the campus size. I wanted to play on a team that was fun to be around, and classes that make you feel more like a contributor than a number.
What is your best memory at Coker (athletic related)? My most memorable moment playing for the women’s soccer team would have to be our 1-0 victory against regionally ranked Newberry College.
What is your best memory at Coker (non-athletic related)? Homecoming was by far the most fun I have had on campus.
Which athletic team would you play on at Coker other than your own? I think I would play lacrosse. The sport seems like it would be really fun, and a lot of the girls on the team are pretty cool.
