Soccer Signs Five Student-Athletes

Feb. 5, 2003

TEMPE, Ariz. - Third year women's head soccer coach Ray Leone announced Wednesday that five student-athletes have officially signed to study at Arizona State University and compete for the Sun Devil soccer program. The class includes two US Youth National Team players, two Parade All-Americans, two NSCAA All-Americans and three of the top players from the state of Arizona.

'We are thrilled to have the commitments of the newest Sun Devils,' said Leone. 'They are going to add even more athleticism to our team; a great work ethic and they are just flat out talented players. We have been following the development of Levise, Lauren and Michelle for the past two years and they are going to bring a lot of flair to our team.'

'Katie and Kim come from the National Champion club team, the Pleasanton Rage, and will bring a wealth of experience to the Sun Devils. Except for Kim, they are all attacking players who should give us a great amount of firepower next year, as we want to build on our NCAA success this past season and take it to the next level. This class is not as big as last years because we only had one senior on this year's team. However, this team is big on personality. They are going to not only bring their talent as players but they are going to add a lot of intensity and personality to the Arizona State program.'
