Culver-Stockton has made a habit in recent years of signing female soccer players from Triad High School.
Kailey Peterson recently joined the list of Lady Knights to turn Wildcat.
“Originally, I went to a camp there. It felt like a team there,” the senior spoke on choosing Culver-Stockton.
An NAIA school, Culver-Stockton’s athletic teams compete in the Heart of America Athletic Conference. The conference has 14 member schools across the states of Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, and Missouri. Culver-Stockton itself is located in the north-eastern Missouri city of Canton.
In addition to being a part of Triad’s two-time defending champion soccer program, Peterson also competed as a member of Triad’s cross country team. Peterson helped the Lady Knights reach the cross country sectionals several times in her career.
The future Wildcat, who plans to major in health science or sports nutrition, spoke about being able to play collegiate soccer, “It’s an opportunity to continue, so it’s exciting to get to play at a new school and with a new team.”
After finishing 13-4-2 in the fall of 2021, Culver-Stockton soccer finished 6-11-1 this past fall. The Wildcats also finished 4-8 in league play.
Peterson gave thanks to, “My family, soccer coaches and friends along the way.”
