Columbia Falls has another soccer player headed to the collegiate level.

Rocky Mountain College in Billings announced Thursday morning that Wildkat Alexis Purcell has signed a letter on intent to play for the Battlin’ Bears for the 2020 season.

The 5-foot-2-inch outside back has been a varsity starter all four years with the Wildkats as she helped lead Columbia Falls to three straight conference titles and back-to-back trips to the state semi final. She earned All-Conference and All-State honors each of the past three seasons.

“Lexi is a talented outside back who has the ability to attack out of the back,” Bears head coach Richard Duffy said in a prepared statement. “We are excited to see what she can do at the collegiate level.”

A two-sport athlete, Purcell also earned all-state honors in 2017 and 2018 for track and field.

“I chose Rocky Mountain College because the academics and athletics are a good fit for me. I like the size of the school, and the campus feels like home,” Purcell said. “Coach Duffy and coach (Kevin) Luse made me laugh on my visits, and that helped.”

An honor roll student, Purcell has earned academic all-state honors with the Wildcats. She will pursue a degree in psychology at Rocky Mountain College.
