BELLINGHAM, Wash. -
Two second-team Class 3A all-State selections - forward Emily Frankland and defender Lyndsey Proctor - have signed National Letters of Intent to play women's soccer at Western Washington University next fall. Making that announcement was Viking head coach Travis Connell.
Proctor, a senior at Enumclaw High School, was a first-team King County Journal All-Area pick and a South Puget Sound League all-star for the third straight year. She helped the Hornets post seven shutouts in reaching the Bi-District playoffs, the school's post-season appearance in 30 years.
Frankland, a senior from Skyline High School in Sammamish, was a first-team Eastside-Journal all-Area choice and a Kingco Conference all-star for the third consecutive season. She led the Spartans with 11 goals and eight assists, second among league scorers, helping the Spartans to a 14-5-2 record and third place at state.
Earlier this month, Western signed Molly Shannon, a senior forward at Bellingham High School. She scored 29 goals and had 11 assists last fall, leading the Red Raiders to a 16-5 record, the Northwest League championship and the quarterfinals of the Class 2A state playoffs. She was a first-team all-state pick, being named Bellingham Herald Whatcom County Player of the Year and Northwest League Player of the Year.
The Vikings graduated just two seniors from a 14-5-1 squad that advanced to the NCAA Division II Tournament for the first time in program history. Western posted a 7-2-1 league record to finish second in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.
