Hays High senior Brooke Russell new at an early age she wanted to play soccer on the collegiate level. When Barton County Community College came calling it was too good to pass up. Russell chose Barton not only because of her want to play soccer, but also because she can work toward her major in ag-business.
Indian’s soccer coach Jim Maska has seen Russell play since she was eight years old, and it was no surprise that she worked her way into a college scholarship. Maska also said that Russell has really taken a bigger leadership role on a young Indian’s soccer team that is in midst of their spring season, crediting her with the marked improvement he has seen in the team over the past couple of games.
