Eclipse Select forward Jarsombeck commits to Creighton for 2013

Eclipse Select Communications

CHICAGO -- Eclipse Select Soccer Club forward Paige Jarsombeck has announced her commitment to play for Creighton University's women's soccer team. The Tinley Park, Ill., native and Andrew High School junior will join head coach Bruce Erickson's Bluejays in 2013.

"I always wanted to go to a private and small school somewhere with a special education program, and I've always loved the city of Omaha," Jarsombeck said of the Nebraska school. "I've been there for soccer and loved it. After meeting with Coach Erickson and their team, I knew I wanted to go there."

Creighton also was the school of choice for Eclipse Select defender and Darien, Ill., native Jessica Mutters, so she and Jarsombeck will continue their soccer careers as teammates in college.

"We've played together for about three years, so it's cool to know that I will play alongside her in college," Jarsombeck said. "We practice with each other, and being teammates at Creighton is a bit of a coincidence. To know someone from Eclipse, I'm guessing that will probably help on the field because we know each other's game."
