Prep notes: Soccer doubleheader will be fundraiser for ailing coach



A soccer doubleheader Wednesday at McKenzie Stadium will coincide with a fundraiser for a coach and a teacher.

Paul Beck, a teacher at Union and a former teacher and assistant soccer coach at Mountain View, has been diagnosed with a form of multiple sclerosis.

Mountain View and Union play each other at 7 p.m. Heritage and Evergreen will play at 5 p.m.

Mountain View coach Jeff Brooks said he is hoping former players and fans of high school soccer can attend and make a donation.

Jessica Chatman commits to BYU

And yet another member of the Chatman family is headed to Brigham Young University.

Union sophomore Jessica Chatman received a scholarship offer from BYU coach Jeff Judkins last week, and she accepted.

“BYU is the only place I’ve wanted to play,” Chatman told the Deseret News of Salt Lake City. “I love BYU. I love the coaches there, and it’s going to be great playing there with my brother.”

Jessica’s brother, Jordan Chatman, signed a letter of intent to play for BYU. He’ll enroll at the school after he returns from a two-year church mission in Taiwan. Jessica and Jordan both plan to enroll at BYU for the 2014-15 basketball season.

Caleb Dressler of Evergreen finished with four points, seven rebounds, and an assist for the 4A stars.
