Thursday, February 20, 2003

BEMIDJI, Minn. - Bemidji State University head women’s soccer coach Jim Stone today announced the signing of Christina Hicks (Minnetonka, Minn.) to a national letter of intent for the 2003 season.

The addition of Hicks brings the total BSU soccer signing class for 2003 to eight student-athletes.

Hicks was a two-year captain for Hopkins High School and helped lead the team to three district championships. In 2000, Hicks was a member of the Minnesota Olympic Development Program.

“ When you look at Christina, you’re looking at someone who was created to play soccer,” Stone said. “Her skill level is at the Division I level. She has a great club background. I really believe she has the ability to be a difference maker for us and eventually dominate games at the Division II level.”

Bemidji State finished its 2002 campaign with a 4-12 overall record, 1-8 in NSIC play in Stone’s first year with the program.
