By on February 3, 2020

On Friday, January 24, Byron-Bergen senior Miriam Tardy signed a letter of intent to attend SUNY Geneseo as a member of their women’s soccer team. At SUNY Geneseo, Tardy plans to study childhood education and work toward her goal of becoming an elementary school teacher. Witnessed by Byron-Bergen Athletic Director Rich Hannan, varsity soccer Coach Wayne Hill, and her family, Tardy took another step toward her future. 

Tardy has played soccer for 14 years; including four on the Byron-Bergen varsity team where she served as captain her junior and senior years. During her varsity soccer career, she was named a Genesee Region League All Star all four years, scoring 80 goals and 187 points. 

“Miriam is an exceptional student-athlete,” said Hannan. “She is a talented soccer player, but she is also a great person and a great role model. We are all cheering her on.” 

In addition to soccer, Tardy is in her fourth season on the varsity girls basketball team where she served as captain her junior and senior years and, this spring, she will enter her sixth season on the varsity track and field team where she was named a Genesee Region All Star in grades 7, 9, and 11. She is Vice-President of the Varsity Club, the Class of 2020 Vice-President, and Vice-President of the Byron-Bergen elite singing group, the Singing Silhouettes. In 2019, Tardy was named Female Athlete of the Year by Byron-Bergen Central Schools. 

“Thank you to my teachers and coaches,” said Tardy. “I appreciate all the support they gave me both on the field and in the classroom.”
