May 8-- Two Treutlen County High School Lady Viking soccer players signed their letters of intent last Friday to move on to play for the Lady Barons of Brewton-Parker College. Carli Meeks and Sydnee Nobles will be taking their talents to the Lady Barons Soccer team. 

They helped lead the Lady Barons to their best season in school history by making it to the second round of the GHSA State A Playoff this year. They were also the Area Champions for the first time in school history. The Lady Vikings defeated Echols County in the first round 2-0 before falling to Lake Oconee Academy in the second round.

Meeks and Nobles were both captains this season. Meeks was a fourth year starter and Nobles was a three year starter. 

Meeks said, “It means a lot to me. I love this game and have put in a lot of work over the past 10 years and to be able to keep playing something you love is just wonderful. I have to thank my mom and dad for pushing me to work hard and my teammates and coaches for being there for me and the Viking community. I like Brewton-Parker; it is small and you feel welcomed there. I think it is a good fit for me.”

Nobles added, “I am really excited for this opportunity. BPC is a nice place to go to college, it is close to home and to my family and my friends, but it gives me a new team and teammates to grow with and will help to get me out of my comfort zone. I really want to thank my coaches, and I want to thank Coach Prince for this opportunity. I want to thank my family for pushing me and supporting me and for always being there for me.”

Marty Meeks (father) stated, “We are incredibly proud of her. She has a talent and has worked hard to continue to improve. We have all been there for her, but she has that drive and has made this happen. We are also very happy that she will be staying close to home, and we look forward to getting to see her play at BPC.”

Ed Nobles father said, “I can tell you as being a 'soccer dad' that I didn't know a lot about the game when my other daughter began playing, but Sydnee followed her into the game and I have learned a lot over the years. It has just been a joy to watch her grow as a person because of the sport. I want to thank BPC and Coach Prince for this opportunity. It is also close to home, and we are very happy that she will be near and that we will get to go see her play and will be close if she needs anything.”

Treutlen Head Coach Davis Brinson added, “It is a great feeling to see them move on to play for Brewton-Parker. They have been a big part of what we have done over the past few seasons and for them to get to take this next step is exciting for them and I am proud of them. They have been great role models for our younger girls and have shown them what it takes to be successful and that attitude will hopefully continue to thrive here at Treutlen.”5 6 19 Lady Vikings Soccer Signees
