He was also named first team all-conference and first team all-state last season.

Lund said he visited other universities before deciding to sign with the South Dakota School of Mines.

“I had to weigh the costs and the benefits,” STM soccer player Spencer Lund said. “In the end, the benefits of going to the South Dakota School of Mines and potentially coming out with a lot less debt than either of the other options, plus getting to play soccer, was really what solidified my decision.”

“His work ethic is above and beyond a lot of players that I’ve seen,” STM boys soccer coach Pete Sales said. “Like I said, whether its practice or games, he gives 110 percent and that’s what really stands out to him.”
