The early signing period for prospective college student-athletes brought two signings from Bemidji High School on Wednesday, as Liberty Dickerson and Emily Wade signed National Letters of Intent to play soccer at Minnesota State Moorhead and volleyball at Bemidji State next year.
Dickerson co-captained Bemidji girls soccer to a 9-4-2 record and runner-up finish in Section 8A this fall, scoring two goals and providing an assist from the midfield. A three-year varsity contributor, she is the fourth recent BHS graduate to join an NSIC school to play college soccer after Isabelle Morin (Bemidji State), Alyse Stone (Southwest Minnesota State/Bemidji State), and Katie Alto (Concordia-St. Paul).
Liberty Dickerson talks signing to play soccer for Minnesota State Moorhead:
Currently in the midst of her senior season, Wade eclipsed 1,000 assists playing varsity volleyball for the Lumberjacks in their match Thursday at Rocori. Wade is in her fourth season at the varsity level and has served as one of Bemidji’s primary setters for the past three years. She is the first Bemidji High School volleyball player to play for the Beavers since 2013 BHS graduate Jessica Yost.
