Catherine Baccarini, a local Navarre soccer player, committed to Faulkner University out of Montgomery, AL earlier this week. Catherine first visited Faulkner last September and instantly made a connection with the coach, the program and the school.
“I spent the entire day at the campus, ate dinner with the players and practiced with the team. I liked everything about the school and really liked the coach and team. One of the biggest things for me was that it was a Christian School and it wasn’t too big”, she related.
