WOMEN’S SOCCER

Vandals sign Hawaiian

The University of Idaho women’s soccer program announced the signing of a Hawaiian player who scored 18 goals as a prep senior.

Jadyn Hanks also produced 12 goals as a junior at Konawaena High, on the island of Hawaii, and was named third-team all-state this year. She grew up in the town of Kailua-Kona.

“We are very fortunate to add a player like Jadyn this late in the recruiting year,” UI coach Jeremy Clevenger said. “The first thing people are going to notice is her speed. She will automatically be one of the fastest players on the field in any game we play.”
