Fleetwood seniors Caitlin Bower and Rebekah Earnest signed their national letters of intent to play volleyball and soccer at Wilkes University and Liberty University, respectively. Caitlin, signing to play volleyball at Wilkes, is very excited for the opportunity to play her favorite sport at a great school with a great coach.

“I really liked the school and campus when I visited, and the coach is really nice,” Bower said.

That feeling is mutual between the two friends who signed their letters together on 11 November. Rebekah signed to play soccer at Liberty University, her number one choice.

“Liberty has always been my dream college. From my first visit, I was hooked,” Earnest said.

The opportunity to play their favorite sports for great universities excites both seniors.

“I’ve played volleyball for six years, and I’m excited to continue playing in college,” Bower said.

Bower hopes to play the position at Wilkes and continue to succeed in college as she has done in high school. Earnest also hopes to have continued success in college following a very successful high school career.

“I was very impressed with the competitiveness of the soccer program. The girls on the team were welcoming, and the group, in general, was more of a family than a team,” Earnest said.

Both Earnest and Bower had tremendous high school careers and will look to continue their success in college. Both student athletes have strong support systems at home, helping them through their careers and their recruitment processes.

“My family is very excited for me; both of my parents like the school and the coach,” Bower said. She remarked that she is very grateful for her parents’ support and help throughout the years and this process.

“They have been nothing but supportive,” Earnest said. She described the lessons of needing to work for what you want to achieve, a lesson instilled by her parents at a young age.

Both Bower and Earnest have bright futures in their respective sports after signing their national letters of intent.
