  • Jaconette signs up for soccer at Asbury

    It just happened by chance that Roman Jaconette signed his national letter of intent to play soccer for Asbury University March 21 at Grant County High School.

    “I really wasn’t going for collegiate soccer,” he said. “It was more like a coincidence.”

    Jaconette said he went on a college visit to Asbury and the coaches asked him to come out and practice with the team.

    “They liked how I was performing and asked if I wanted to play for them,” he said.

    Tori first got interested in basketball when her dad introduced her to the sport when she was in the fourth grade.
