“The teams I’ve been involved with have all become successful because of the character of the players.  I’m looking for student-athletes with that same character who are willing to pursue excellence in every moment on the field and in the classroom,” said Missmer.

Missmer will hold a Women’s Soccer I.D. Camp from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 21, for all uncommitted high school seniors or juniors, JUCO student athletes, and current/potential Penn State Lehigh Valley students. The event is free and registration is required. To register, contact Missmer at [email protected], and include name, phone number, graduation year and position in the body of the email.
