As mentioned in this morning’s slate, we here at Bring on the Cats are committed to keeping the stories coming this summer, and with that in mind we turn our attention to Kansas State soccer.
Coach Mike Dibbini and the Wildcats secured a verbal commitment from Lily Hollis, forward/mid-fielder, from Kearney High School in Missouri. Hollis will be entering her sophomore season at Kearney this fall, so it’ll be a few more years before you see her smashing goals in Manhattan.
Starting as a freshman this past season at Kearney, Hollis was an invaluable member of the squad scoring a game winning goal in the 102nd minute against Platt County to lift Kearney to the Class 3 District 16 championship. Hollis was also one of three freshman named to the 2017 Class 3 Region 4 All-Star team.

It’s still very early in Lily Hollis’ career, but this already appears to be a steal for the Wildcats. Based on last season, and this year’s recruiting class it appears Coach Mike Dibbini is well on his way to establishing a solid women’s soccer program at Kansas State.
