Renth will play for the Division-II Skyhawks in the Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association under head coach Chase Wooten. Renth scored two goals in the 2021 season, and will be depended upon by the Tigers in the upcoming spring campaign.

Hockett will play for Redhawks head coach Heather Nelson after also having played for Scott-Gallagher in the 2021 spring season. In her freshman season in 2019, Hockett scored twice for the Tigers and will be seen as an important player this coming spring.

Abby Federmann is very proud of the players' accomplishments and sees bright futures for all of her signees.

"Yes, it is very exciting to see all of their hard work over the years, both academically and athletically, allow them to continue to play the sport they love," Federmann said. "Playing at Division I or II level is no small feat, and the girls should be very proud of themselves. Selfishly, I'm thrilled to have all this talent on one team this season!"
