Five BV girls sign for college soccer

On the Wednesday before spring break, five senior girls signed to different colleges around the country to play soccer. Those five girls were Brooke Lickteig, Alysha Palacio, Jay Palm, Evan Palmer and Sally Stromme.

“These girls have the opportunity to play at the next level because they have put in many long hours,” head soccer coach K. Dean Snell said. “Opportunities like this don’t come without hard work.”

Brooke Lickteig signed to play soccer at the University of Central Missouri.

“Brooke is one of our varsity co-captains,” Snell said. “She is a very unselfish player and she demands the best from herself and her teammates.”

Alysha Palacio will soon be an Eagle at the NAIA school, Oklahoma Christian University.

“She really shows great attitude, skills, and leadership on this team,” Snell said. “We will miss her greatly.”

Jay Palm signed with the division one school, Stony Brook University in New York.

“Jay is a four-year varsity player,” Snell said. “She is a great leader and is also very unselfish. She even stepped up to play goalie one year when our goalie was injured.”

Evan Palmer will be attending the University of Arkansas.

“She is one of our co-captains and also a four-year starter on the varsity squad,” Snell said. “Evan sets a great example with her leadership and she truly cares about her teammates. She will certainly be missed.”

Sally Stromme signed to attend and play soccer at the University of Minnesota Duluth.

“She is a really great teammate and player,” Snell said. “We will really miss Sally a lot.”
