Emporia native Samantha Dickens played her first game of college soccer for the Bluefield College Rams last week. 

The 2018 GCHS graduate five seasons with Greensville, including four years of varsity.  She is the first GCHS soccer athlete to sign to play college soccer.,

Dickens managed to obtain a starting position on the roster at Bluefield and recently came up short losing 5 to 0 to Cumberland University.

Bluefield’s goalie went out in the 35 minute with a torn lateral MCL, leaving the team to use their unpracticed back up goalie. Dickens played the entire 90 minute match at left defense.
