Nic Cress signs to play soccer at Spalding Unversity
Cress, a goalkeeper, said he wanted to go to a school where he could play and not have to sit out two years, "I feel like, you know, Spalding is a place I can go and actually excel."
Cress had 12 shutouts for the Saints.
"It's a huge deal to come out of a school as small as St.Pat's to get a scholarship to go to play soccer, to go to college and do your sports, and to do them well," St. Patrick coach Father Michael Black said. "Nic's also an extremely bright kid. so he's going to get a good education there."
Cress said he plans to major in business, and possibly go to law school.
Spalding University is an NCAA Division III school. The Golden Eagles are members of the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
