Hampton Seppi will trade the maroon and gold of White River for the blue uniform of Columbia Basin Community College.

On national signing day, the Hornet senior inked a national letter-of-intent to play for the Hawks.

Seppi has been involved with organized soccer for 14 years, beginning with pee wee play. Along the way, she played with Cascade Foothills Soccer Club, Sumner Soccer Club, South Hill Revolution and Mount Rainier Football Club; this year, she switched to the GU 96 Blue team at Pac NW Soccer Club, based out of the Starfire complex in Tukwila.

She played at Bonney Lake High as a freshman, then spent three seasons on the White River varsity, playing center midfield or forward. She registered five goals her final year as a Hornet.

She received attention from 11 college programs and, following a campus visit in mid-December, made a verbal commitment to the Pasco college.

The Hawks participate in the East Division of the Northwest Athletic Conference, which boasts 34 members scattered throughout Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Columbia Basin went 6-10-4 overall last season, including a 6-8-4 mark in conference play.
