Samantha Benne makes it official and commits to play soccer for Our Lady of the Lake University


We are proud to announce Lady Rattler senior defender Samantha Benne’s commitment to play soccer for Our Lady of the Lake University. Sam is a three-year letterman and 2020 team captain. She celebrates this tremendous achievement with her family, friends, teammates, and coaches today at Reagan’s signing day ceremony.

What OLLU Coach Arthur Salazar is saying about Sam: “We are very excited to have Sam as part of the OLLU women’s soccer program. I have had the opportunity to work with Sam at the club level, and I know she has what it takes to be a very good addition to the university, both on and off the field. Her selflessness, work ethic, and commitment to success will help continue to push the program forward.”

Congratulations and best wishes to Sam as she pursues her academic and soccer goals as an OLLU Saint! Go Saints!
