Creighton University women’s soccer adds three to signing class
Omaha, Neb. – Creighton University women’s soccer head coach Ross Paule pushed his 2020 signing class to eight as he officially announced the signing of Chloe Arnold (Santa Ana, Calif.), Alexis Johnson (Scottsdale, Ariz.) and Abigail Santana (Marion, Iowa).
Arnold played four seasons at Foothill High School as a midfielder, earning a varsity letter in each campaign. One of seven siblings (Brittany, Christian, Denise, Thea, Arianna and Trea), Chloe played club soccer with Strikers FC ECNL for the past six seasons.
A two-time state champion in Arizona, Johnson was named to the 2018 Sports360AZ All-Academic First State and the ODP State team in both 2016 as well as 2017. Johnson played high school soccer for two seasons with Chaparral HS and will complete her diploma as one of the top-10 in her class this spring. She played club soccer for Sereno 02 ECNL (2016-18) and for the 02-03 Utah Royals DA (2018-2020).
Creighton’s third addition, Santana, was the 2019 Iowa Gatorade Player of the Year. Abby enters Creighton as a three-time First Team All-State selection, a two-time MVC Athlete of the Year and an Allstate All-American selection in 2019. A three-year letter winner for Linn-Mar High School, Santana was the the first freshman to earn First Team All-State for Lions. At the club level she played three seasons in the ECNL for FC Wisconsin and competed for Sporting Iowa as a senior.
“We are excited to add all these talented women to our team,” noted Paule. “Each bring character and talent to elevate our team both on the field and off.”
Arnold, Johnson and Santana join the following five new additions that were announced in late January, Lilli Bedell (Seattle, Washington), Mara Grutkamp (Essen, Germany), Trinity Harvey (Colorado Springs, Colorado), Madison Radke (Colorado Rapids, Colorado) and Peighton Steffen (Waunakee, Wisconsin).
