OKLAHOMA CITY (July 19, 2013) – Courtney Nixon, who shined on defense and in the midfield at Putnam City North High School, has signed a letter of intent to play collegiately at Oklahoma Christian, OC women’s soccer coach Randall Robison said Friday.
Nixon helped Putnam City North finish 10-5 and advance to the second round of the Class 6A playoffs as a senior. She scored two goals for the Panthers in a 4-3 win over longtime power Edmond Memorial in the first round of the playoffs.
Nixon finished the season with nine goals and 17 assists for Putnam City North. She was named to the Oklahoma Soccer Coaches Association’s Class 6A All-State team and was a second-team pick on The Oklahoman’s All-City honor list.
“Courtney has grown to be a very versatile player,” Robison said. “She has been a proven defender; this spring she proved herself to be a consistent goal scorer as well. There are a number of places on the field that we expect her to help us improve. We are very excited to have Courtney as a part of our program.”
Nixon is the fourth member of OC’s signing class for the 2013 season, joining midfielder Sophia Brazil of Deer Creek High School in Edmond, midfielder Kelsey Taylor of Chickasha and defender Amanda Cooper of Keller, Texas.
