Stacey Swezey, above, and Kay McGee, both of Hudson High School, are committing to Lees-McRae College in North Carolina. They’re not the only players on the team getting college offers.

The U18/19 Hudson Lady Cobras boasted their most successful college signing year to date, with two players committing to Lees-McRae College in North Carolina. Both players, Stacey Swezey (defensive midfielder) and Kay McGee (sweeper), attend Hudson High School.

The Lady Cobras also have two other players on their way to committing to colleges. Heather White (defender) from River Ridge is likely headed to Division II Columbia College, while Alicia Schuering (midfielder) from Hudson High plans to commit to either Eckerd College or Polk Community College in the coming weeks.

"I don't have an explanation for how this recruiting class came together," Lady Cobras coach Chris Swezey said. "The stars were aligned in our favor or something, because we've had a really good group of girls over the last few years.

"As an organization, you want to move players onto the next level because it increases the appeal of the club," he continued. "We don't want this to be a miracle. This is what we want as 'the norm,' but it hasn't been so far."
