Head Coach Robert Hunter is pleased to announce Kellie Watts as the next member of the 2019 Koalas Soccer signing class.
Watts will enroll at Columbia in the fall of 2019 from Swansea High School, where she has been a varsity team member for four years. The Tigers made the 3A Lower State final in 2018, and Watts was a key component in the playoff run. In addition to playing for her high school team, Kellie also played competitively at the club level, most recently for the Technical Soccer Club 00 Girls PDP team.
Coach Hunter said, "Kellie is a tough, physical defender who will add much needed depth and athleticism to our squad. She is someone who will give everything she has in order to be successful, and we feel as if she will come in and be someone who competes for playing time right away. Kellie is a player who will relish the competitiveness of the NAIA level, and I feel as if she will only continue to get better throughout her career here at Columbia College."
