On signing her National Letter-of-Intent to play women's soccer at SMWC...

"I have worked so very hard for this day and am so excited to play for Coach Hendry and be a part of SMWC women's soccer team. It is truly a dream come true!  There are so many people to thank… my family, Coach Hauger, Ray, Carlos, Cobie, my defense and all the SHS Lady Arrows team, along with the fans. SMWC is the perfect fit for me. I attended St. Louis de Montfort, a small private Catholic School in Fishers, IN, until moving to Sullivan, so it is like coming home to me. I feel so fortunate to play the sport I love while attending college and following in my Catholic faith. I am truly blessed and thankful."

Head Coach Craig Hendry Quote:
