Bryan Chud, head coach of women’s soccer at Northwest University, announced the signing of seven student-athletes to attend the university and play for the Eagles in fall, 2018, including Margaret “Maggie” Gunning of North Bend.
Gunning is a senior at Mount Si High School and has earned two varsity letters in soccer. She was also a member of the school’s Sports Medicine Executive Board and was an athletic trainer for the Mount Si football team. An honor-roll student, she will major in Nursing at Northwest.
Chud said “Maggie is a tough tackling and intelligent centerback that is excited about coming in and developing her skills even further here at NU. We are very pleased to have her join the program, and believe that she will play a large role in the years to come.”
Also joining the team will be Olivia Morris, of Mercer Island; Emily LaRue and Taylor Beardemphl, both of Graham; Adele Gordon, Lake Stevens; Taylor Brame, Snohomish; and Elizabeth Moretti, Caldwell, Idaho.
“I am extremely pleased with the level of players that we have been able to bring in this year. I have no doubt that these recruits can not only play at the collegiate level, but that they will add to the strength and depth of the program we already have in place,” said Chud.
