All three Lakota West seniors on the Firebird's womens soccer team look to continue their careers at the next level, all verbally committing to Division I schools.
Four year varsity player Abby Mink (Wright State), three year varsity players Amy Lower (Ohio), and Katy Rudokas (Xavier) have all decided where they will continue their college careers. All three cannot sign their national letters-of-intent until February 1, 2006, which is the first day of the early signing period for soccer players. With all three players contributing in the past three years, the Firebirds have gone 41-10-6 and have made it to the Final 32 in the Division I State Tournament each year. The Firebirds have won the GMC championship all three years and have been ranked in the top three in Cincinnati.
Lower (left), a two-year second-team All-Greater Miami Conference at forward, scored seven goals and dished out nine assists last year. Lower also considered Eastern Michigan, Wright State, Ball State, Dayton, Toledo, and Louisville. Lower has a 3.0 grade point average, and hopes to major in either speech pathology or special education.
Rudokas (center), a second-team all-GMC selection as a stopper, also considered UC, Ball State, Butler, and Miami. Xavier?s academics helped make her decision. Rudokas has a 4.25 GPA and looks to major in the science field.
