HUNTINGTON, Ind. – Huntington University soccer coach Russ Lawson announced that Leo High School standout Nicholas Bond has decided to continue his collegiate career as a Forester.

Bond played a key role in helping the Lions win consecutive ACAC championships. He had an impressive senior campaign in goal, posting .56 goals against average doing his part in assuring the backline had all the support they needed.

“When you see Nick’s technical ability and combine that with his ability to control his box, you begin to see quickly why he is able positively impact matches at all levels,” said Lawson. “He has also gained valuable experience playing his club ball for Fort Wayne United at the academy level.”

Bond possesses that same desire for excellence in the classroom as he earned a spot on the Indiana Soccer Coaches Association All-State Academic All Team and will enter HU this fall as a Presidential Colloquium student studying biology/pre-med.

Nicholas is the son of Thomas and Christine from Fort Wayne, Ind.

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 16 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 39 NAIA All-America honors and 213 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S.News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.
