At first glance opponents may have overlooked the 5’4” Maxzine Rossler. But once the games began, all eyes were focused on the fleet-footed scoring dynamo. Rossler quickly established herself as the all-time leading scorer in Waubonsee women’s soccer history and also made her presence known on the basketball court as well.
Rossler graduated from Hinckley-Big Rock High School in 2010 where she was a key member of the Royals’ back-to-back Class 1A state basketball championship teams. She also was an All-Little Ten Conference performer in soccer, but the leap she took the next two years at Waubonsee was a little unexpected.
As a freshman at Waubonsee in 2010, Rossler burst onto the national stage. She was third nationally in goals with 37, third in points with 82, and scored in every ISCC match. She was named an NJCAA Second Team All-American, and the Region IV and Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference (ISCC) Player of the Year. She helped lead Waubonsee to an undefeated conference title, a Region championship, and a District Runner-up finish. The Chiefs went 18-4-1 overall, including a 13-0 mark in the Region and were ranked 16th nationally.
Despite being a marked woman her sophomore year, Rossler finished second nationally in goals with 34, was third in points with 83, and 12th in assists with 15. She was named an NJCAA All-American once again, and was selected to both the All-ISCC and All-Region First Teams. Waubonsee again captured the Region title and went on to win the District crown, earning the program's first ever berth in the NJCAA Division I National Tournament. The Chiefs finished with 17 wins and were among the final eight teams nationally.
Rossler still holds or shares 18 scoring records, including most goals in a half (4), game (5), season (37) and career (71); most points in a game (10), season (84) and career (166); most multiple goal games in a season (14) and career (24); most hat tricks scored in a season (5) and career (10); most games with a point earned in a season (19) and career (36); most games with a goal in a season (19) and career (34); most games with a goal and an assist in a season (10) and career (15); and fastest goal to start a game (0:12).
In addition Rossler was a key member of Waubonsee’s basketball program, averaging 12.5 points-per-game while helping the Chiefs win 35 games over two seasons. She earned All-ISCC First Team and All-Region Second Team as a freshman guard, and was All-ISCC Second Team as a sophomore. Needless to say she was an easy choice as Waubonsee’s Female Athlete of the Year for 2011-12.
Rossler went on to Purdue University-Northwest where she still holds nine school records in soccer despite playing only two years there. She was also a member of the Peregrines basketball team for two seasons, and earned a degree in Education in 2015. Rossler worked as a fourth grade teacher at Yorkville Intermediate School, and was the Freshman girl's basketball head coach and assistant girl's soccer coach at Yorkville High School for four years. She began working as a Special Education teacher in Carol Stream in the fall of 2020.
