Patricia Roach, a sophomore midfielder from San Jacinto High School, signed with NCAA Division II Lincoln Memorial University while fellow sophomore midfielder, Kaylee Wolever from Hemet High signed with San Diego Christian College. SDCC is an NAIA Division I soccer school. Both Roach and Wolever were First Team All Pacific Coast Athletic Conference North Division selections this past season as they helped the Lady Eagles team to a conference championship and the program's third straight trip to the CCCAA State play-offs. MSJC finished the 2015 season with a record of 16-4.
Roach, who was second on the team in total points with 20, scored 7 goals this past season and also had 6 assists. Roach will be joined at LMU by Lady Eagle teammate Ryane McDevitt who signed with the Railsplitters a couple weeks ago. "I am excited", said Roach "they have my major and the coach was very understanding, I see myself fitting in great at the school."
Wolever who scored one goal and had one assist will join a San Diego Christian team that went 9-8-1 last year as a member of the Golden State Athletic Conference. "My experience at MSJC really helped me grow as a player and as a person", said Wolever. "I think if I didn't start out at MSJC I wouldn't be where I am." Wolever said she chose San Diego Christian because she wanted to stay local and really thought the school was a good fit for her, "I think I will get the most out of it."
Roach, Wolever, and McDevitt are joined in the 2015 signing class by Valeria Garcia and Gabriella Chaname. Garcia and Chaname signed with Wayland Baptist University an NAIA Division I school in Plainview, Texas. This is the second straight year that MSJC has had at least five women's soccer players sign scholarships to continue their education and their playing careers.
