Along with seven freshmen, Georgetown College women's soccer team will have two transfers to bolster the roster with a total of nine in this recruiting season.
"Some classes will just automatically be larger than others. We had some injuries throughout this past season that made it very tough, and I'm really excited to be bringing in nine for the 2013 season," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman.
Marshall University and former West Jessamine High School star Hana Henderson is the most recent signee for the sixth-year coach. She will be wearing No. 13 in the Orange and Black.
"Hana is a midfielder that I'm very excited about," Castleman said. "She has great college experience as well as playing for one of the best high school programs in Kentucky."
Bronte Suarez, an Indianapolis, Ind. native, spent this past season playing for Jackson Community College in Michigan. She will be wearing No. 2 for Georgetown.
"She also brings in college experience which helps to take what should be a youthful team to a more seasoned team," Castleman said. "She is a flexible, attacking player, who could see time at the outside midfielder or center midfielder position. I can even see her as a possible target at the forward spot, similar to how we used Alex Harbowy."
Georgetown went 10-7 this past year, finishing fourth in the Mid-South Conference and advanced to the semifinals. The MSC had two teams ranked for the first time in a while and sent both to the national tournament. Lindsey Wilson and Cumberland University represented well with the Blue Raiders bringing home the national title.
