Isabella Serena has officially signed her letter of intent to play for the Plainswomen soccer team. Isabella, known by everyone as Bo, is a multi-sport student-athlete from Pueblo, CO and attended Pueblo Centennial High School where she participated in soccer, basketball, and swimming. As a prep in soccer, Serena played outside back and helped lead her team to the Colorado State Tournament three times. Additionally, she was named honorable mention as an All-League selection.
Outside of athletics, she was a part of numerous other extracurricular activities. She was in DECA and qualified in their state competition for three years. Also, she was in FBLA and on the staff of their high school newspaper, the Centennialight.
Serena is excited with her signing to Northeastern. She commented, "I'm thankful for this opportunity that I have been given to further my education and soccer career at NJC. I'm excited about being able to play at the next level and to experience new and great things. I'd like to thank my family, my teammates and my coaches for all the support they have provided me over the years. Life is amazing, God is great, and I am thankful."
Head Coach Ken McAlpine is looking forward having her play in different positions at Northeastern. "We are very excited that Bo has decided to become a Plainswoman," said McAlpine. "Although she has primarily been used as an outside player, we feel she has the ability to play centrally as well. I believe she will learn, develop, and grow very nicely in our system. She has a terrific attitude, is a good 1v1 defender, plays very physically, and has a cannon for a leg. She will bring a lot of intensity and toughness to our defense."
