“We are very excited that Keela has decided to join us at Jamestown College,” Jamestown College head women’s soccer coach Phillip Bohn said. “She has the ability to be a very successful winger-type player at the college level. Her drive and determination to succeed is evident in how she plays, and I am really excited to get to work with her starting in the fall.”
