Starkville Academy’s Meri Laci Archer and Anna Card of Starkville Academy celebrated signing soccer scholarships with Meridian Community College.

Meri Laci Archer and Anna Card knew if playing college soccer was in their future, they wanted to do it together.

Archer was ready to give up the sport and enroll at Ole Miss, but changed her mind once she toured the campus of Meridian Community College and visited the soccer program there.

It didn’t take Card long to realize that’s what she wanted to do also and they made the decision to become Eagles the week before Thanksgiving.

On Tuesday morning, the Starkville Academy pair made it official and signed scholarships to continue their careers with Meridian Community College.

“We knew we wanted to go play somewhere together and Meridian gives us this opportunity,” Archer said. “It’s a wonderful campus and location. I know I’m excited.”
