Senior Cole Ours has signed a letter of intent to play soccer at Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisionburg, Virginia next fall. Cole has been a four-year starter in the Iowa Mennonite Soccer program, and has been a key leader on this year’s 16-1 team.

IMS Coach Marcus Miller said, “Cole has developed excellent ball skills, a good feel for the game and increased confidence on the ball allowing him to become a potent part of the offense. Cole’s ability to beat defenders down the sideline before cutting to the goal has frustrated numerous defenders and while defenses have marked him much of the year, he has risen to the challenge. Cole has scored 36 goals and recorded 27 assists in his high school career and been named to the SEISC First Team for two consecutive years.”

An Academic All Conference performer all four years at IMS, Cole will enter EMU with an open major. Cole is the son of Jeremy and Sheila Ours of Kalona.
