The 2020-21 high school soccer season is in its infancy. But two Foster High School girls soccer players are planning for life after the season.
In December, the Lady Falcons had Abrianna Morales and Chloe Mills sign their letters of intent to play soccer at Southwestern University and Schreiner University, respectively.
The events were held a week apart at the same hallmarks, the non-traditional signing event outside at the Falcons’ field house, but the venue change allowed more people to attend during a pandemic.
Morales has made an impact at midfielder for the Lady Falcons, earning first-team all-district honors. She is currently a team captain.
Morales joked that she wasn’t going to be able to get through her speech without a tear or two. She was correct in her assessment as she teared up, thanking her friends, family and coaches for their assistance through the years.
Southwestern was 16-5-1 in 2019, and the 2020 season was canceled due to COVID-19.
The Pirates are based out of Georgetown, and the school is an NCAA Division III member of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference.
wMills has been a four-year contributor for the Lady Falcons’ program at defender. Mills is a team captain while earning multiple selections to the all-district and all-area teams.
“I’m super excited for Chloe,” Wilmot said. “I’m not ready to get rid of her yet; we still have one more season. She’ll finish her on top. She’ll go to Schreiner and kill like it as she did in high school.”
The senior defender will be joining a Schreiner University squad that finished 5-12-3 in 2019, and the 2020 season was canceled due to COVID-19.
“I’m excited to become a Mountaineer,” Mills said in her signing speech where she thanked all of her coaches and family for their support over the years.
The Mountaineers are based out of Kerrville and are also members of SCAC.
