Cox headed to Bluefield

King’s Fork High School senior Lonni Cox will play her college soccer at Bluefield College.

After leading the Lady Bulldogs in goals scored the past two seasons, Cox signed her National Letter of Intent Wednesday Playing in college has been a dream she has had since she was a kid.

After speaking with coaches and looking at other schools, including Mary Baldwin University, she said she felt most comfortable at Bluefield.

“They see that I’ll be a big asset to the team,” Cox said. “They look forward to see what I can do to help the team in the fall.”

Cox, who scored 17 goals, felt good about her senior campaign and earned a second-team All-District selection.

“This season was definitely great,” she said. “Even though we didn’t get to go as far as we would have liked I was able to play my last season with my girls.”

At Bluefield, she plans to major in exercise and science.
