BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Western Washington University women's soccer coach Travis Connell announced today that Kamryn Barney, a senior at Snohomish High School, and Kamilla Deeb, a transfer from NCAA Division I Saint Peters College, will play for the Vikings this fall. They both have accepted formal offers of admission.

"We are excited to add two players of this caliber and character to our program," said Connell. "Kamryn is a versatile player who can play anywhere in the back line and in midfield. Kamilla is a smart player that brings Division I experience to our team. I expect both of them to make an immediate impact on our team."

Barney earned honorable mention Western Conference North Division honors for three straight years at Snohomish. As a senior, she had three goals and 11 assists in helping the Panthers to a league title and the first round of the Class 4A state tournament.

Deeb played in 16 games, starting 15, at Saint Peters, which is located in Jersey City, New Jersey.

At Bonneville High School in Utah, Deeb was a three-time all-Area selection. She helped the Lakers to Class 4A state titles in 2008 and 2010 and regional crowns in 2009 and 2010.
