Area Colleges: UIS soccer signs four

Four players from two states signed with the University of Illinois Springfield women’s soccer team Wednesday.

Pewaukee (Wisconsin) High School’s Courtney Johnson could help fill the void left by all-Great Lakes Valley Conference goalkeeper Paige Polonus. Johnson’s high school team was a sectional finalist and won a conference title in 2015.

UIS coach Molly Grisham has also signed Erin Bolskar and Mariah Nina Rodriguez. She expects to use them as target forwards or wide attacking players. Bolskar plays for Muskego (Wisconsin) High School, which qualified for state the last two years. Rodriguez, a four-year starter, plays for Joliet Catholic Academy.

Kara Lyn Cipolle is an attacking central midfielder from Joliet West High School. She is a four-year starter.
