“My strengths as a soccer player are my quick thinking and my competitiveness, which both are going to push me harder on the field,” Yantis said.

Looking back on her time with the Lady Tigers, Yantis highlighted her favorite memory as winning the state title with her team.

“Not everyone gets to experience that, and I’m happy I got the chance to experience that with such a talented group of girls,” Yantis said.

To prepare for her first soccer season with LCCC, Yantis said she has been working hard to understand the faster pace of the game at the college level.

Yantis’ advice to other high school athletes looking to play at the collegiate level is to believe in themselves and their abilities.

“Don’t wait for validation from anyone, be your own hype man. If you love the game, keep playing. There is nothing to lose by doing so,” Yantis said.

In addition to her efforts out on the field, Yantis plans to study health sciences while attending LCCC.
