Four sign for Tabor women’s soccer

Four more women have signed letters of intent to play soccer for Tabor College this fall, according to head coach B.J. Livingston.

Elizabeth Finch, a graduate of Mayde Creek High School, Houston, Texas, has played soccer for six seasons, and currently plays midfield.

She is a member of the National Honor Society, was a class officer for four years, received silver and gold awards from the Girl Scouts as well as the Senior Excellence Award for art and an Environmental Science Excellence Award, and won numerous awards for photography.

“Liz is a perfect fit for Tabor,” Livingston said. “She will not only contribute to the soccer team, but to the campus in general. I’m excited about Liz joining our squad next season.”

Rachell Kennedy, a transfer from Metropolitan State College of Denver, plays both the right and left fullback position.

“Rachell has a great work ethic and will contribute significantly on the defensive end,” Livingston said. “She has the qualities as a player and a person that can only help our team and campus.”

Sarah Lopez, Humble, Texas, will transfer to Tabor from Central Christian College in McPherson. During her freshman year, she was named first-team all-region and defensive most valuable player.

She repeated the all-region honor her sophomore year, and was an all-American honorable mention.

“Having a keeper of this caliber transfer to Tabor is exciting,” Livingston said. “She will help us immediately, and I look forward to having her on the team next year.”

Danielle Matzek, a graduate of Word of Life Traditional School, Wichita, was left fullback and earned the Christian Leadership Award. As captain her senior year, she led her team to a 9-4 mark.

“Danielle will bring an enthusiastic energy to our team and campus,” Livingston said. “She’s a good fit and will help us on the defensive side of the ball.”
