COllege soccer: Peninsula stars sign with 4-year schools

Oliveira, Nottage and Alcott all moving on to play at next level

Soccer players Sam Oliveira, Kayla Alcott and Halle Nottage became the first three Peninsula College sophomores in the class of 2020 to sign national letters of intent to play at the next level at a signing ceremony held on Jan. 24.

“These three have done a great job of representing the college both on and off the field,” PC women’s head coach Kanyon Anderson said. “They are great teammates and we are all genuinely proud of them.”

Oliveira, of Porterville, Calif., was Peninsula’s leading scorer in 2019 and North Region most valuable player. She will continue her college career as a junior on the Vikings soccer team at NCAA Division I Portland State University. She will be reunited with former teammate Emily Greve, who is a junior at PSU.

Alcott, of Ewa Beach, Hawaii, and Nottage, of Kailua Kona, Hawaii, are both headed to NCAA Division II University of Mary, following recent Pirate graduates Samantha Guzman and Malia Brudvik to the Marauders women’s soccer program. University of Mary is located in Bismarck, North Dakota.

The trio helped Peninsula to an NWAC championship in 2018 and a runner-up finish in overtime last fall.
