Huntington, Ind. - Huntington University women’s soccer coach Ryan Burgher has announced that Mingo Valley Christian School (Broken Arrow, Okla.) standout Allison Toering has signed a national letter of intent to continue her playing career at Huntington University this fall.

Toering, a four-year varsity starter and two-year captain, has led her team in goals each year. Five games into her final season, she has 11 goals. As a junior, she was her team's MVP and scored 25 goals. She was also named All-State at the Tri-State Tournament.

Toering also plays on the Broken Arrow Soccer Club where she has been a captain the past four years.

Off the field, not only has Toering maintained a 3.9 grade point average, she is president of the National Honor Society, secretary of the Key Club, member of the Memorial Bible Church Youth Group, and Sunday morning worship leader at her church.

“Each time I visited, the girls really accepted me and made me feel included right away. The coach is a lot of fun and the atmosphere and small campus seem like a great fit for me,” commented Toering. “Playing soccer is something I love to do, and I am so excited that I actually get to play college ball. I’m also looking forward to getting to know the girls on the team better...they’re all really fun.”

“Allison really fit in great with our team when she came to visit. She is a great girl that is involved in a lot of positive organizations outside of soccer. She is going to lead and influence our team in a encouraging manner,” said Coach Burgher. “On the field, Allison has the speed and size that I love in a player. She has the ability to play different positions but we will be looking for Allison to score goals for us, and the coaching staff is confident she can and will."

Allison is undecided on a major but leaning towards studio arts. She is the daughter of Larry and Shyla Toering.
The Huntington University Foresters compete in 14 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 53 NAIA All-America honors and 173 All-America Scholar Athlete honors.
