Central Wyoming College women’s soccer proudly announced the signing of their first three student-athletes Tuesday, all of which are seniors at Riverton High School.
Head Coach Brooks Paskett told those in attendance at the ceremony, “I’m very happy that we’re signing our athletes and starting in our community so that we can take care of the best local athletes first.” He also noted that the soccer community in Riverton has done a great job helping shape athletes with skills that can transition to the next level.
Riverton High School girl’s soccer coach Tanya Santee was also at the signing ceremony. She told the crowd, “It’s really exciting to know we’re going to have so many girls on the CWC team. It’s a great time for Riverton soccer.”
Lady Wolverine Elliot Stafford was the first to sign her letter of intent. She told those in attendance, “I’m appreciative that I’m the first one that gets to sign for a new team.”
Goalkeeper Madi Pantle signed next with a short but pronounced statement, “I’m pumped, I’m really excited.” Coach Santee told Coach Paskett that he had made a great choice with the selection, “she’s a phenomenal goalie, she’s going to be awesome, she gives everything.”
Finally, Evelynn Bock signed. Bock admitted that she didn’t think college soccer was in store for her future, but the new opportunity to play at CWC was too good to pass up. Coach Santee said, “she’s a great girl, a great player, she brings lots of different skills to the program and I’m really excited to watch her.”
