Senior bios: Cassopolis’ Louisa Lohse

Louisa Lohse is a senior on the Cassopolis soccer team.

Activities:  Netflix, Disney+, baking, trying to learn Spanish and annoying the family.

Hobbies:  Soccer, basketball, volleyball, scouting, baking and going to clubs.

My favorite soccer memory: I enjoyed every practice with the girls, but I am so sad that the season was cut short and we didn’t even get to have a game.   

Future plans: I’ll finish school in Germany and then attend university.

Awards/Accomplishments: Being an exchange student in the USA.

Advice to underclassmen: Be strong. If you have a dream, make it come true.

How have you been making the best of being quarantined? I try to stay positive. It’s been hard because I miss my family and friends in Michigan so much (since I had to go back to Germany). It’s so boring to stay at home.
