Two Northwest College soccer players will be taking their talents to four-year institutions after signing letters of intent to play on — with Peyton Roswadovski and Edwin Martin Wiesner Talero both moving on to universities.
Roswadovski made the decision to head up north to finish out her two years of remaining eligibility, choosing the University of Providence in Great Falls, Montana.
“I went there and all the people were super nice and friendly,” Roswadovski said. “It definitely has a small town feel like Powell. They have a really good educational opportunity for me, with a 100% success rate in getting people into veterinary school.”
In her freshman year, Roswadovski was named the Region IX Freshman of the Year after finishing with 15 goals during the season — which was 17th in the nation in 2021.
After a step back in her sophomore year, Roswadovski finished with just three goals on five shots — something she hopes to improve heading to the NAIA Division I level for a team that went 3-11-1 last season.
“I wanna excel more as a forward because this last semester I struggled to score,” Roswadovski said. “I wanna learn even more from them, and excel education-wise as well and be involved to get some veterinary internships.”
Heading into college Roswadovski had not played forward after playing as a defender at Thunder Basin High School in Gillette for four years.
She said that in her two years, coach Rob Hill has allowed her to learn the position while continuing to work hard each and every day.
“He’s been a super serious coach but also fun at the same time,” Roswadovski said. “He taught me a lot more as a forward since I had never played it. I learned how to work harder and how to use my body to be a forward and work my way around defenders.”
Roswadovski said she will miss the friends she made at Northwest, and the community members who made her experience enjoyable.
Talero will be going the opposite direction from Roswadovski, heading down south to Wayland Baptist University in Plainview, Texas.
“I talked with coach [Robert Ssejjemba] and he was a really nice coach,” Talero said. “He told me all about the program and academics and it was really nice. The warm weather is also a plus.”
Talero is a freshman from Costa Rica, who will transfer with three years of eligibility remaining.
He finished with one goal for the Trappers this past season from a midfielder role, where he learned a lot in his one season under Hill.
“Rob taught me a lot,” Talero said. “This year was incredible … I have friends here that I am never going to forget.”
Heading to Texas, his first goal is to make an impact in the starting 11 for the Pioneers, while helping his team make it to the NAIA Division I national tournament after a 6-9-1 season.
He said that he is going to miss the close bonds made with people in Powell alongside his teammates.
