The work these girls have put towards the soccer program at IHA and their schoolwork is truly tremendous. Gianna Nitti’18 shares “I was so proud of myself and my classmates for officially signing to play college soccer because its been our goal ever since we started playing.”

On behalf of the staff of Accents, we want to wish all the girls the best of luck at their colleges. You’ll shine in the classroom and on the field!
