"I am excited that Allison will be joining us next year. She is a good goalkeeper and she is a great fit for our school and our soccer program. I believe that she will come in and compete for the starting position right away as a freshman. She just fit in nicely from the first time she came to visit."
Why she chose Cornerstone
"I am very excited to play Soccer for Cornerstone, I think I knew immediately that this is where God wants me to be at this time in my life. The coaches and team were so inviting and I felt I was at home. It is nice to know that school, coaches and team all love Christ and want to find his will for their lives, as I do. I look forward to playing soccer and hope to contribute to the team both on and off of the field. I am very passionate about soccer and the sense of team that I have felt is so awesome. It is wonderful to know that through prayer God will help you make the right choices and is exactly what I believe I have done in accepting the offer to play soccer for Cornerstone.
Allison is the daughter of Jim and Mary Snowden of Portage, Mich.
