Lucy Davis is ready to be a Georgetown College Tiger, recently signing a letter of intent to play soccer here starting in the fall of 2011.
"I'm really excited about coming here, and I know I made the right decision," the senior from Ashland Blazer High School said.
Davis helped the Tomcats to two regional championships, twice reaching the state sub-sectional. The team reached the regional championship game all four years and tallied a 60-25-7 record in that span.
In her junior season, Davis scored eight goals and had four assists. This past season, she netted five goals and tied a team-high with four assists.
"I was immediately impressed with Lucy's maturity, enthusiasm and work ethic when she came on her first visit to campus last fall," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "She has great athleticism, and I see huge potential for her to develop into an integral part of our system."
It was during that first visit that Davis really knew where she wanted to go. Despite offers from Transylvania University and Centre College, she knew Georgetown was where she wanted to be.
"First, I really liked the team aspect and really liked the team," Davis said. "I visited Transy and talked with Centre, but I loved Georgetown. I love its small school concept and it has my major. I love all of it."
Castleman can see Davis coming in and challenging right away for a starting spot.
"I will be looking for her to be fighting for the spot vacated by our senior outside back, Katie DeVeau," the fourth-year coach said. "Lucy reminds me a lot of the type of player that Katie was - dedicated, disciplined and very versatile. She has a great four years ahead of her."
Davis has spent time on various club teams including the Rowdies out of West Virginia and most recently a team in the Eastern Kentucky Futbol Club.
"I know that Georgetown is a pretty good program," Davis said. "The team is a hardworking team with a huge emphasis on team effort."
