Head Women’s Soccer Coach Michelle Lenard announced Monday the signing of 10 high school student-athletes to National Letters of Intent. This class represents one of the largest groups of athletes to sign at Dallas Baptist and represents one of the most talented. “We are very excited about the addition of all of these players to our program next year,” said Lenard. “Every one of these players loves DBU and is thrilled about the opportunity to be a part of what we’re building here and that makes me very excited for next year. They are great kids and as a group will provide our team some much needed depth as well as a few immediate impact players.”

Lindsay Eccles
Denton, TX
Ryan High School
TFC
“Lindsay is one of the most technically gifted players we have ever had on this team. She has put the work in over the years to hone her skills and it has paid off in a big way for her. She has had a tremendously successful high school career, always being counted on as a goal scorer for her team.  Lindsay’s love of the game is evident every time she steps on the field. We will be looking to Lindsay to come in and contribute right away, adding an additional scoring threat to our offense. I can’t wait to see what she does here.”

Sarah Boren
Rowlett High School
Solar Soccer Club

“Sarah is one of the most enthusiastic players I’ve met. She is so excited to be a part of this program and we are thrilled to have that kind of attitude on our team. Sarah is a defensive player who could see time in the back line this year. She is strong and physical and works hard to every ball. She will be an exciting player to watch.”

Ally Swift
Aledo High School
Sting Soccer Club

“Ally is very athletic and I believe has tons of potential. She could see playing time as a target forward or even get some time in midfield or defense. Ally has a lot to offer with her size, strength, and athleticism and we will find a place for her to be successful.”

Kailey Roberts
Skiatook High School
Blitz United

“Kailey is a small, dynamic, attacking minded forward who has an unmatched work rate. She is a blue collar player that finds a way to make things happen. Kailey’s tenacity on the field could earn her immediate playing time and maybe even a starting position. We will look to her to be dangerous going forward and be a scoring threat for our team.”

Ashley Cox
Midlothian High School

“Ashley’s speed is her number one asset. She was a successful soccer player as well as track athlete in high school and very well could have gone to college to run track. She is explosive and athletic and could fit into several positions on the field. She is a bit unconventional in her style but finds a way to create things for her team.”

Dayna Debacker
Sandra Day O’Connor High School
Dallas Texans San Antonio

“Dayna is a true center mid. She has a great soccer IQ and can see the game at another level than most 18 year olds. She has composure on the ball and can distribute well from the midfield. She is very technical and strong in the air. I expect Dayna to compete for a starting position in the midfield.”

Annie Wells

Trinity Christian High School
Dallas Texans

“Annie is a great ball winner and very smart defender who can also distribute out of the back. That is a hard package to find in a young athlete. She has great size and is very good in the air. She could immediately compete for playing time in the back line or the midfield.”

Jolee Patterson
Royse City High School
Andromeda Soccer Club

“Jolee is a quick and explosive forward. She is hard working and dangerous 1-on-1. She will add depth and speed to our front line.”

Briana Rene
Plano West High School
ASG Futbol Club

“Bri is a very technical finesse type player who has the ability to create chances out of nothing. She can squeeze passes through to players that didn’t even look to be an option. She is quick to distribute and has great vision. She could see time in the midfield or as a holding forward.”

Emilie MacDonald
Ovilla Christian High School

“Emilie is a great athlete with terrific speed. She is an extremely hard worker who relentlessly pursues the ball. She was a high school multi-sport athlete who had success at a high level in basketball as well. Emilie is a diamond in the rough and I expect her to develop into a big contributor in our program.”
