Seven high school seniors, including a quartet from the Crossfire Premier club program, have signed letters of intent to attend Seattle Pacific University.
Northwest Nazarene added 10 new players to its 2012 roster, signing six players from the state of Idaho and four recruits from Washington.
Five of Seattle Pacific's recruits are also from Washington, including Crossfire competitors Emma Holm, a defender from Kirkland (Lake Washington HS), Laura Moore , a forward from Kent (Kentwood HS), Shayla Page, a defender from Redmond (Eastlake HS) and Ashley Shaw, a midfielder from Seattle (Seattle Lutheran HS).
Taylor Hauck, a defender from Shoreline (King's HS), played her club soccer for the Washington Rush.
The Falcons recruiting class also features Monica Gomez from Riverside, Calif. (Woodcrest Christian HS) and Courtney Shearer from Bend, Ore. Gomez is a defender who played club soccer for Slammers FC and Shearer is a goalkeeper who played for the Oregon Rush.
"This is not only a very talented class, but a very well-rounded class with a goalkeeper, forward, two midfielders and three defenders," said SPU coach Chuck Sekyra, who directed the Falcons into the NCAA Division II tournament in each of his nine seasons. SPU won the 2008 national championship.
"All of these players not only come from talented club teams, but those club teams were successful at the highest level possible in our country. They are all excellent students who are great additions to our program as young women on and off the field. This is going to be a fun group to coach.”
