White River High’s Samantha Kelley will be taking her goalkeeping talents to Billings, Mont., in the fall.

She recently signed a national letter-of-intent to play soccer for Rocky Mountain College, earning an athletic/academic scholarship.

Rocky Mountain College plays in the Frontier Conference and is a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. The 11-team conference includes six schools from Montana, two from Idaho, two from Oregon and one from Utah.

Kelley, who has played organized soccer for 14 years, was a four-year member of the White River varsity. Following her senior campaign, she was named the South Puget Sound League’s most valuable goalkeeper in a vote of league coaches and also received honorable mention all-state honors. She had received honorable mention accolades as a junior.

As a student, she received White River’s Student-Athlete Award each season for having a grade-point average of 3.5 or better.

The past two years, Kelley honed her skills by working out at a local Crossfit gym, joining the school’s power lifting team and working with a personal goalkeeping trainer.
