The booters are back.

After being knocked down by the pandemic, the North Whidbey Soccer Club’s annual Rock On! 3 v 3 tournament lives again this summer.

The popular event, which ran for 12 years prior to the Covid-19 shutdowns, is set for May 27-28 this year.

The tourney is open to players from age seven and up, with teams from on and off Whidbey joining.

Cost is $150 for a youth team and $175 for an adult team.

Youth teams play to the oldest player’s age group, while co-ed teams play in the boys’ division.

Trios don’t need a coach, but youth teams need an adult willing to “be in charge.”

Registration deadline is May 12.

On to the next challenge.

Coupeville High School senior Nezi Keiper has signed to play soccer for Edmonds College.

A First-Team All-Conference player and team captain, the Wolf ace anchored her team’s defense the past four years.

Keiper was a tower of power on the backline for Coupeville, making life easier for her goaltender’s, while showcasing a mix of grit, hustle, and a booming leg.

She also played basketball at CHS and was a star football player back in her middle school days.

A member of the Coupeville Sports Hall o’ Fame, Keiper is slated to graduate this spring.

She will join an Edmonds team which is rebuilding after not competing in 2022.

The Tritons, who play in the Northwest Athletic Conference, have a new coach in place and Keiper is part of a group of recent signees who hail from spots such as Lynnwood, Monroe, and Utah.

Edmonds women’s soccer won NWAC titles in 2000 and 2002.
