Seniors Kailee Gifford, Joelle Anderson and Lyndsey Mitchell each signed official contracts to play for college soccer programs today.

Kailee signed to University of California Berkeley and will play for the Bears this fall.

“I fell in love with [soccer] 14 years ago, and not once have I regretted it, not even for a second,” she said in a Facebook post this afternoon. “Thank you to everyone who has helped me turn this dream into reality, I am blessed beyond measure.”

Also staying in California, Joelle will play at Pepperdine University. She has played on the girls soccer team for the Upper School the past four years and looks forward to continue building her soccer skills. Outside of Harker, she has trained and played for an outside club.

Lyndsey will play at Nebraska Wesleyan University as a Prairie Wolf this fall. She has also played for Harker for the past four years, and additionally, plays outside club soccer too. This season, she is ranked second in points on the girls soccer team.
