“I am excited to announce my commitment to Dominican University. I chose Dominican because it will allow me to pursue a nursing degree while playing collegiate soccer and staying close to home.
There are so many people who have encouraged, instructed, sacrificed, and come alongside me:
I would like to thank my past and current teammates for always being by my side (sometimes putting up with me) and pushing me to be the best person and soccer player possible.
I would also like to thank all my Placer coaches who believed in me and nurtured my love of soccer: Crystal Howard, Chris Alcala, Mark Broers, Andrew Toth, Todd Decarlo and of course, Ron Benjamin. I’d also like to thank my Rocklin High coach Paul Morrison. Past trainers Bart Morefield, Jimmy Frazzel, and now Kim Gonzalez have helped me on occasion with individual training and coaching points as I’ve strived to improve continually. Lastly, I would like to say a special thank you to my parents and sister. They have always supported, sacrificed and loved me unconditionally and they never give up on me.
Thank you to Coach Coffey and Coach Lingadfelt for inviting me to be a part of the Dominican team and University. I am very excited to be part of the vision and community they are creating at DU. Go Penguins!” — Tanya Bills
