Hatman says two factors contributed to her decision to become an Eagle. She says she loves the community aspect of the school, but she is also looking forward to continue playing alongside Stroud.
Stroud and Hatman are both part of the 2019 Lady Bomber soccer team that advanced to the Class 5A state quarterfinals. They were unable to play their junior seasons last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hatman goes on to say Williams Baptist head coach Gabriel Sitibaldi will be expecting his players to be in top physical condition as part of the team.
Stroud adds her time at Mountain Home has helped prepare her for this next level, both on the field and in the classroom.
Kenzie Hatman is the daughter of Jason and Heather Hatman of Mountain Home. Kirsten Stroud is the daughter of David and Carla Stroud of Mountain Home.
