Karla Ivette signs with NCC soccer

Northwest Iowa Community College (NCC) has announced the addition of Karla Ivette to both its women’s soccer team and the Associate of Arts: Exercise science and Kinesiology program.

Hailing from Lincoln, Nebraska, Karla brings a wealth of talent and technical skills to the Thunder roster. Invette said her decision to join NCC was driven by the sense of community she felt on her visit and the safety that the NCC community was able to provide for her.

“I felt very at ease knowing that they take safety into consideration and have emergency buttons around campus if I were to ever feel unsafe,” Invette said.

Invette’s lifelong dream is to become either an athletic trainer, or a physical therapist one day.

“I love sports and also love to learn about the way the body works so I thought it was be a great idea to pursue this as a career,” she said.

Throughout her high school years on the pitch, Ivette has played a lot of different positions, but finds herself to enjoy center defensive midfielder and center attacking midfielder the best. Her soccer journey began by playing for LARFC as well as Hawks, in her hometown, then currently playing for Sporting NE this year, where she has been able to hone in on her skills on the field.

Joining Team Thunder fills Ivette with excitement as she looks forward to playing alongside her new teammates and starting a new chapter in life.

“It’s a new team faces and a new environment that I am excited to explore.”

Coach Tre Thomas was also thrilled about Ivette’s addition to the team.

“Karla is a technical player that knows the game really well and is a work horse. I have built a great relationship with her for some months now and I am greatly thankful she is going to be suiting up in Thunder gear for the next 2 years. She is a great kid that has a lot of ambition and will be great addition to the culture that I want to develop here!”
