Clark College welcomes star recruits from Battle Ground, Camas, Evergreen, Fort Vancouver, Hudson’s Bay, Mountain View, Ridgefield, and Woodland.

VANCOUVER, Wash. -- Clark College will welcome an all-star class of women’s soccer players for fall 2007.  Head Coach Troy Sletten recruited heavily in Southwest Washington and has signed 13 players within a 15 mile radius of Clark College. 

The recruits include Brooke Koppi, a forward from Evergreen High School, who was a two-time First-Team All-League Greater Saint Helens League (GHSL) selection.  Sletten describes Koppi as “very speedy, technical and has the ability to score goals.” 

Sletten added, “Kylee Krouse, a sophomore transfer from Western Oregon University, will help to solidify the forward position. Kylee is a very forceful player and also has a great knack for scoring goals.”  On the defensive side of the field, said Sletten, three-time All-League GSHL selection Christina Lopas “will help strengthen the Penguin backfield.”
