Lincoln Signs Local Goalkeeper to 2014 Roster
WILMORE, Ky. - Brooke Perkins, a goalkeeper from West Jessamine high school, signed her letter of intent to play for the Asbury University women's soccer team in 2014 last Friday. Perkins becomes the first official signee for head coach Brooke Lincoln, who finished her first season at the helm of the Eagles in 2013.
"I am excited to add Brooke to the family. She is a player that is going to help us take a step forward in raising the level of our program," Lincoln said of the West Jessamine senior. "Brooke is a true competitor and will have the opportunity to come in and make an impact right away."
Perkins is just the latest West Jessamine product to join the Eagles. Perkins joins the Eagles after overcoming some significant adversity in her high school playing career. The senior overcame two knee injuries in previous seasons to get to this point and is ready to take her game to the next level.
Asbury made it to the NAIA National tournament last season after winning the KIAC tournament and looks to Perkins to add to a team with already high hopes.
