Where to begin?
Caitlin Harty has played varsity soccer, indoor and outdoor track for four seasons each. She is also a three-sport captain in this, her senior year. Yet those facts barely scratch the surface.
With remarkable speed and ability to create shots for herself, Harty is one of the greatest high school soccer players the North Shore has ever seen. She will graduate as Beverly High’s all-time leader in goals (138) and total points (180). She was the Northeastern Conference MVP and Massachusetts Division 2 Player of the Year this past fall, where she was also named All-Conference, All-State (for the second straight season) and All-New England. Having led the Panthers to their first-ever Division 1 North title as a junior, the three-time team MVP she had 48 goals and 13 assists last fall and scored a remarkable 98 goals in her final 44 high school games (spanning two years). She is also the reigning Salem News Player of the Year.
A three-time all-star in both winter and spring track, Harty is part of the school record 4x800 indoor relay team as well.
“Caitlin is a terrific student-athlete and best of all, a great role model for our underclassmen,” athletic director James Coffey said. “Many student-athletes in our freshman and sophomore classes look up to Caitlin and follow her example. Although she’s extremely accomplished for a high school student, Caitlin has remained completely humble.”
Academically, Harty is the No. 2 student in Beverly High’s senior class of 318 students and carries a sterling 4.6718 grade point average. She has received one A-minus in her high school career; the rest of her grades have been either A’s or A+. She is a member of the school’s Peer Leaders and Freshman Move Up Day and, as a sophomore and junior, took part in the Key Club.
