Friday, February 15, 2013

Notre Deme's Blair Barker has signed to play soccer at Jacksonville State University.

 

She was a four-year starter for the Lady Irish and was instrumental in the State Championship season her sophomore year.

 

She also earned All-State honors her junior and senior years.

 

She said, “I’m really excited to play at Jacksonville State. When I first visited Jacksonville, I immediately fell in love with the campus. It is a good fit for me size wise, and everyone I met was extremely friendly.

 

 

“I am also excited to play soccer with the girls on the team. I felt like everyone just clicked. You could see how much they loved playing the game.

 

 

“Notre Dame has prepared me both academically and athletically. I think I have matured as a player over the past four years. Playing at a higher level will be different and definitely challenging, but I am so happy I have been given this opportunity.
