Kaitlin Maxwell (EGA 98/99 Maroon) Commits To Missouri State University

Missouri State University

Lisa Sterlings comments on Kaitlin's commitment: 

Words can not explain how excited we are that Kaitlin is going to play soccer at Missouri State. A dream of a little girl has now been realized and this would not have happened without Marcus and the rest of EGA. Marcus took the time to understand Kaitlin's priorities and desires in a school and then got her the exposure she needed. We can't say thank you enough for this opportunity for her and are incredibly proud of her. Determination and hard work does payoff. Go Bears!

Kaitlin's Comments on her commitment:

I'm very excited to get the opportunity to go to Missouri State and I think it'll be a great fit for me! The distance is perfect and I'll get to study what I want. I wanted to thank Marcus for all the help throughout the process. I'm relieved it's finally done and now I can focus on getting prepared to play for them!

Marcus Kelcher's comments on Kaitlin's commitment: 

I could not be any happier for Kaitlin and her family.  I have been incredibly blessed to coach many great keepers but I can honestly say that Kaitlin is among the best of them.  She is an incredible talent and will be a fantastic addition to the Missouri State University program.  I would like to congratulate Kaitlin on her commitment and I look forward to working with her as she prepares for the next level.

Erin's comments on her commitment 

I am excited to have committed to UNI and have the recruiting process behind me. I believe that UNI will be the perfect fit for me as it met many of my criteria. I really like the soccer program that Coach Price has created and look forward to being a part of his team. UNI offers the degrees that I am the most interested in and I feel that I am ready to explore those options.

Russ and Laura Clifton's comments on Erin's commitment

We feel blessed and are very excited about Erin’s decision to play at UNI. We are happy that the school is close enough for us to be able to continue to watch some of her soccer games and yet far enough away to allow her the college experience and independence. We would like to thank EGA and Marcus for the support and opportunity given to Erin. We look forward to watching Erin play for Coach Price.
