SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – Mission Viejo native Kellian Ahearn has inked her commitment to compete for The Master’s College women’s soccer team in the fall of 2014.

“I chose TMC because I fell in love with the idea that I could get an education and play soccer with Christ as the central focus,” commented Ahearn. “I look forward to furthering my relationship with God and making an impact for God both on and off the field.”

Ahearn, a future graduate of Trabuco Hills High School, enters her time at The Master’s College with a loaded resume consisting of playing experience for three years at the varsity level, earning 2014 Most Inspirational Player honors, bagging 2014 All-Sea View League Team accolades, being named team captain her senior year, and receiving the squad’s Coaches Award during her junior year. The future Lady Mustang also excelled on the track by earning the team’s Coaches Award in 2013.

Looking ahead, Ahearn looks to continue her athletic achievements by playing all four years at The Master’s College.

“I am very competitive and will fight for a starting position in this team,” assessed Ahearn. “I also plan on helping TMC win the GSAC and furthering this program on a national level.”

Head coach Curtis Lewis is on the same page with Ahearn’s ambitions.

“It doesn’t take a whole bunch of time to see a good soccer player and that was the case with Kellian,” commented Lewis.  “She’s technically sound and feisty. In addition, she’s a great fit with the team as she gets along well with the girls on the team and loves the Lord. The way she interacted with the girls was almost like she was already on the team. We are very blessed and excited to have her join us. I think she’s going to make an immediate impact here at The Master’s College.”

Lewis plans to slot Ahearn in the midfielder position.

When not competing on the pitch, Ahearn plans to major in Communication.

The Lady Mustangs went 15-6 (6-4 GSAC) in 2013 and made their first appearance in three years at the NAIA National Tournament where they fell to CSU San Marcos 0-1 at Reese Field.

Now, the 18th-ranked Lady Mustangs look to a strong 2014 campaign where they will open with a road game against Concordia (OR) on August 23.
