KCC women’s soccer signs Sierra Powell of Owosso

Sierra Powell of Owosso has signed a letter of intent to play women’s soccer at Kellogg Community College and will begin playing for the team during the fall 2012 season.

Powell has been playing soccer for 12 years and was a starter all four years at Owosso High School. In 2010, she was Most Valuable Player and has also been the Beastly Award winner.

Barth Beasley, head coach of women’s soccer at Kellogg Community College, said Powell, a goalkeeper, is a very aggressive defender who believes in and lives by the words “quick, slow, sideways, low” and who has had six consecutive shutouts.

“Sierra is a great athlete with a great and positive outlook on life,” Beasley said. “She gives us depth at two key positions. She is very driven to obtain her goals on and off the field, which mirrors our goals in player development for all our student athletes.”
