MCC Soccer inks seven players for 2014 season

MERIDIAN — Meridian Community College women’s soccer coach Mike Smith announced Monday afternoon that seven players have signed their national letters of intent to play soccer at MCC for the 2014 season. The seven players officially signed with Meridian Community College in front of family and friends, in a ceremony that was held in the Graham Gymnasium on campus.

    The Lady Eagles are coming off an 11-5 overall record in 2013 and are hoping this group of players will help push the program back into the Region 23 Championship picture in 2014.

    “We are very happy with the recruiting class that we have put together so far,” said Smith. “We believe that all of these girls will bring contributions to our squad next season.”

    The lone local player that signed with MCC Monday afternoon was Heather Harwell from Clarkdale High School. Harwell will join her former team mate, Kayla Phillips, on the squad at MCC next season. Phillips led the Lady Eagles in assists during the 2013 season and was among the leaders in the nation in the same category for most of the season. Harwell will look to had help at defender next season for the Lady Eagles who finished with a 5-5 record in MACJC South Division play.

    The Lady Eagles also added one more defender to its roster for the 2014 season with the signing of Skylar Guthrie from Florence High School. MCC will also welcome a pair of new midfielder’s to campus next season with the signings of Tori Riebock (Florence High School) and Summer Stockstill (Picayune High School). The Lady Eagles added one forward to Monday’s signing class with the addition of Katie Valentine from Laurel Christian High School.

    MCC completed its signing class by inking two keeper’s for the 2014 season. Chanler Pickering (Northeast Jones High School) and Britney King (Richland High School) both signed as well during the ceremony Monday. Both players will look for playing time in 2014 and also look to fill the empty net left by sophomore Kaitlin Polk. The former West Lauderdale star recorded four shutouts for the Lady Eagles in 2013.
