Having been a cheerleader and also playing volleyball, Roana Davis was not looking for a new sport as she was preparing to enter her freshman year at North Central High School, especially one which was foreign to her. At the urging of a friend who was looking for someone she knew to try out for the new girls’ soccer program at the school with her, Davis accepted the offer. Four years later, the NCHS senior defensive player/goalkeeper signed a National Letter of Intent with the Coker College women’s soccer program.
