Falmouth senior Tyler Spence, second from right, is joined by her parents, Scott and Melissa, sister, Parker, coach Andrew Pelletier, athletic director Cooper Higgins, and athletic trainer and assistant athletic director Rob Sullivan, after signing her National Letter of Intent Wednesday to attend and play at soccer at Slippery Rock University in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, a Division II school. Spence was a four-year standout for the Yachtsmen and won a state title as a freshman.
“It’s a very exciting day,” said Spence, who plans to study social work. “I fell in love with the school when I saw it. I fell in love with the team and the coaches. It’s a very good program. I think I’m going to love it.
“It was incredible to be part of such a competitive team here and playing with girls like Caitlin Bucksbaum and Cassie Darrow made me love soccer even more.”
“Tyler deserves it,” Pelletier said. “She’s one of the most enjoyable girls I’ve ever had the privilege to coach. She’s always smiling and she worked hard outside of the fall. There aren’t many players who are technically better or who understand the game better.”
