Riverhawk senior recovers from broken foot to play college soccer

TWIN FALLS, Idaho ( KMVT / KSVT ) A soccer player overcomes an injury to make a lifelong dream a reality.
Hunter Price signed her letter of intent with Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, Oregon.

The Wolverines program is rather new and Price hopes to make an impact quickly.

During her senior year, she broke her ankle in the first meeting against rival, Twin Falls.

The incident happened in the opening 15 minutes of the game, when she challenged the ball with another player. The forward spent most of the season recovering, but finally got action in the last game and helped her team during districts.

"I found a note that I wrote when I was a kid saying I wanted to play college soccer. I found that the other day. It was kind of crazy because when I broke my ankle i didn't expect to go on, it was kind of exciting," exclaimed Price.

Canyon Ridge head soccer coach Christa Tackett added, "she is such a big part of our team, so when she did get hurt, it was pretty devastating because her passion and willingness to do what we need done was gone and to watch her struggle sitting her senior year was hard. But when she came out the last game she played was amazing to watch her."

Tackett expects three more soccer players to sign with various programs.
