Article by: AdVantage News, (618) 463-0612

Three Granite City seniors have recently announced that they will continue their soccer careers in the collegiate level next year.

Noah VanBuskirk will head to Lewis and Clark Community College, Ymaury Escareno will go to Southwestern Illinois College and David Myers is on his way to Blackburn College.

VanBuskirk will join a Lewis and Clark program that finished 12-3 and reached the Region 24 finals last fall. The Trailblazers are coached by Ryan Hodge.

Last fall, VanBuskirk, Escareno and Meyers helped the Warriors enjoy their best season since 2008. Granite City finished 9-10-2 after winning just two matches the year before.

VanBuskirk was the team's top scorer with a career-high 14 goals. He finished with 17 in his four-year prep soccer career.
