Taylor Ward signed athletic scholarship papers recently to play soccer at Spokane Community College of the Northwest Athletic Conference, where she’ll rejoin former teammates Riley Couch and Ashly Busch. “I’m excited, I wasn’t ready to be done with soccer,” said Ward, who will study psychology and can’t wait to play with Couch and Busch again. “They said it was a lot of fun. They really like the coach. I think it will be good for me.” Baranski said Ward has both athleticism and defensive intelligence, which should serve her well at the next level. “I think she will make a fairly immediate impact,” said Baranski of his all-league defender. “She’s one of those players that refuses to be left behind. She does what is necessary to get her team to succeed.”

Pictured front row, from left to right: Dave Mulder, Dawson Mulder and Nikki Mulder. Back row: SHS athletic director Kris Knowles and Bulldog boys soccer coach Adam Tajan. Dawson signed a letter of intent on Thursday to play soccer next season for Spokane Falls Community College of the Northwest Athletic Conference. The senior was the MVP of the Inland Empire League after netting 24 goals, and he can’t wait to test his skills at the next level. “The higher level of play. New experiences with a team that I haven’t been with,” said Mulder, who plans to study physical therapy. He has a 30 plus inch vertical, which should serve him well in the college game, where he’ll likely play forward. “I see Dawson as an instant impact guy. They landed a rock solid recruit,” said Bulldog head coach Adam Tajan. “Dawson is a tremendous athlete and I think he’s only scratched the surface of what he’s capable of.”
