The Lynden High School athletic department announced Tuesday, Feb. 9, that senior Emily Holt expects to sign her national letter of intent to play women’s soccer for Central Washington University on Thursday, Feb. 11.

Holt, a goal keeper, had nine shutouts and allowed just 14 goals in helping the Lions reach the district tournament for the first time in program history last fall. She also was selected the Northwest Conference Defensive MVP and to The Bellingham Herald’s All-Whatcom County team.

The Wildcats went 7-9-1 in 2015 and finished tied for fifth in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference standings.
