It’s good to be connected.
It certainly was for Amy Neal, the star player on the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team, as she was trying to figure out where she might attend college next season.
Neal, the two-time Player of the Year in Class 4A, will attend and play for the University of Tennessee next season.
She made her decision during the off-season, saying she was glad to get it out of the way before the start of her senior year with the Hilltoppers.
Although she was impressed with the Tennessee women’s soccer team, she’s rather underwhelmed by the school’s overall lack of fashion sense.
“They have this really gross orange color,” Neal said. “But they have a nice program and they support their teams really well.”
When she begins her collegiate career in 2013, she will be the third Neal sibling to play college-level soccer. Big brother Avery played at Pacific University and her older sister Kelsey is currently at the Colorado School of Mines.
Amy considered joining Kelsey at CSM, but changed her mind and selected the Division-I school in Knoxville.
