Kenai Central seniors Max Dye and Tristan Landry signed letters of intent to play college sports last week.

Dye, son of Jennifer and James Dye, will be playing golf a Division III Marian University in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, while Landry, son of David Landry and Brenda Fowler, will be playing soccer at Peninsula College, a junior college in Port Angeles, Washington.

Both are currently finishing their prep careers with Kenai Central’s soccer program.

“They’re both just great competitors and team players,” Kenai Central soccer coach Joel Reemtsma said. “I’m excited to see what they can do at the next level of college athletics.”

Kenai Central doesn’t have a golf program, so Dye, a central defender in soccer, spent some time in Texas his senior year working on the game. He will join a team that finished sixth in the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Championship this season under first-year head coach Brett DeNap.

Landry is the goalie for the Kards, and also played basketball and football his senior year. Peninsula College has won four of the last seven Northwest Athletic Conference titles. Jake Hughes was just named head coach of the program in March.
