“Patrick is a very skilled midfielder. He is a relentless attacker. He comes from a highly successful soccer pgram at McPherson. He has also been a key cog in his club team (Kansas Rush Wichita) which has also been highly successful during Patrick’s time with them. He is quick and tough and a great ball winner and passer. As the class Salutatorian (class of 180), he is also a tremendous student and I feel he will really excel in our engineering program. Patrick also comes to Dordt with excellent leadership skills having been a three-year captain for his team. We are elated he has joined our soccer team and program and I am looking forward to coaching him,” said head coach Craig Stiemsma.
Munsey is a three-year soccer captain who has also participated in Tennis, Swimming, and Jazz Band while being named Salutatorian of his graduating class.
Patrick is the son of James and Denise Munsey of McPherson, Kansas. He intends to study Engineering at Dordt.
