Several area high school players have committed to play soccer for the North Idaho College women’s team in the fall of 2012.
“This is a great group of local players, which includes probably the four best attacking players graduating from North Idaho schools in 2012,” said NIC Women’s Soccer Head Coach Dan Hogan. “They will definitely be fun to watch over the next two years.” Area soccer players committing to NIC include:
Katie Baldwin was a three-year varsity defender for Coeur d’Alene High School. She was also on the Coeur d’Alene Sting team that was a 2011 Idaho State Cup finalist.
Kacy Johnson was a 5-10 defender who played two years of varsity soccer for Coeur d’Alene High School. She was a captain for the Vikings her senior season.
Emilee Cordon played two years on the varsity where she was the Coeur d’Alene High School Offensive Player of the Year and was named to the Inland Empire League (IEL) All-League first team. Cordon will play either midfield or forward at NIC.
Ellie Engel played forward on the varsity all four years at Sandpoint High School. She was a member of an Idaho state championship team, two runners-up teams and a fourth-place team. Engel won the Golden Toe Award for her team as well as Most Improved. She has been named to the Inland Empire League All-League Team multiple times.
Kellsi Parson was a four-year varsity starter at midfield and forward for Lewiston High School. Named Inland Empire League Most Valuable Player in 2011, she also led the Bengals to their first district championship as well as two trips to the Idaho State High School Tournament.
Alyssa Allen played forward on the Lake City High School varsity for three years, earning Offensive MVP honors for the Timberwolves as well as being named to the IEL All-League team. A knee injury sidelined her much of her senior season, but she’s expected to be back at full strength by the start of training camp in August.
