Johnson picks HU

Huntington University women’s soccer coach Ryan Burgher has announced that Peru High School senior Maranda Johnson has signed her national letter of intent to continue her education and playing career at Huntington. She is the Foresters’ seventh recruit to sign for the 2011 season.

Johnson, a four-year member of the Bengal Tigers soccer program, was an MIC honorable mention selection. She was also a member of yearbook club, newspaper, and basketball.

Johnson, who plans to major in broadcasting said, “I chose Huntington because it had a really good communications department.”

“We are really happy to have Maranda join our program here at Huntington,” said Coach Burgher. “She is a player that can come in and play multiple positions right away.”

Johnson is the daughter of Myron and Tina of Peru, Indiana.
