UNION, NJ – Two Union High School seniors, sisters and soccer players, signed letters of intent on Wednesday – one headed to Robert Morris University and the other to Union County Community College.

Soccer player Kayla Veloso-Lima said she chose Robert Morris because it gave her the blend of athletics and academics, including her major, Nuclear Medicine.

“When I went on my official visit there, I really liked the team and coaching staff,” said Kayla.   “I also have always have wanted to go away for college and RM is a perfect distance away and closeness to home. The professors I met with are really supportive of student-athletes. It just felt like a good fit.”

Kiana Veloso-Lima chose to stay closer to home.  “I met with the coach and I really liked her style and the way we got along when I met with her. The team and the school have a very friendly environment and I'm excited to become a student- athlete there. I also liked their nursing program that was my initial draw but soccer is a bonus.”
