Georgia soccer head coach Steve Holeman on Wednesday announced the addition of 11 athletes who will join the program this coming fall.
Holeman’s class includes eight players from Georgia in addition to one each from Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, and is comprised of four forwards, three midfielders, two defenders, and two goalkeepers. The group will bolster a squad that won seven games in 2012 and lost four starters to graduation.
“This is a huge day for Georgia Soccer,” Holeman said in a news release. “Our staff has worked incredibly hard over the past few years to put together what we feel is one of the top classes in the country. It’s a group that will give us depth at every position and help us to become a lot more dangerous in the attack. We have a lot of talented players coming in who can step in and help us become a lot better.”
The four forwards entering for the 2013 season include Marion Crowder (Madison, Miss./Chicago Fire Juniors Mississippi), Rachel Garcia (Duluth/GSA Phoenix), Kelsey Nix (Roswell/NASA Elite), and Lauren Tanner (Buford/GSA Phoenix).
At midfield, the Bulldogs bring in Hannah Edwards (Johns Creek/GSA Phoenix), Gabby Seiler (Peachtree City/Concorde Fire), and Angelica Tabares (Phenix City, Ala./NLSA Legends).
The defenders include Caroline Waters (Woodstock/NASA Elite) and Taylor Donohue (Lawrenceville/GSA Phoenix).
Goalkeepers are Kara Looby (Tampa, Fla./TBU Premier) and Jill Maloney (Alpharetta/GSA Phoenix).
