Seven players have joined the Missouri women’s soccer team.

Laura Buehrig, Jena Lind, Maddie Senkowsky, Megan Shelley and Elizabeth Wheeler signed letters of intent last week and Casey Dreyfus and Megan Smith will join as walk-ons.

Wheeler set the Kansas high school record for most assists in a season at Olathe East and is ranked among the state’s top-10 players in career scoring.

Buehrig and Lind are from Texas and were members of Region III Olympic Development teams. Senkowsky, a senior at Glendale High, was named to the All-State team in 2003.

Rock Bridge boys' soccer

Senior Matt Lightner will sign a letter of intent to play soccer at Campbell University in Raleigh, N.C at 3:15 p.m. Friday in the Performance Arts Center Lobby at Rock Bridge.

Columbia College men's soccer

Clay Stansberry, a senior from Moberly High, signed a letter of intent to play soccer with the Cougars. Stansberry was All-State last season with 29 goals and 16 assists.


Maurice Clarett is ready to enter the NFL draft, clearing another legal obstacle Wednesday when a federal judge rejected the league’s request to suspend her ruling.

U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin concluded the Ohio State running back could face “very detrimental” harm if excluded from the draft. She said the NFL would not be irreparably harmed if Clarett and other underclassmen are eligible.

“Maurice Clarett’s going to be in the draft,” the player’s lawyer, Alan Milstein, said after the decision.
