Lady Saints Ink Four in Early Signing Period

DAHLONEGA, GA - The North Georgia College & State University women’s soccer program has announced the signing of four players to NCAA National Letters of Intent for the 2009 season.

“The 2009 recruiting class goes a long way towards filling the needs of our team,” head coach Chris Adams said early Wednesday afternoon. “We are excited about this group’s ability to come in and complement the existing players who return next year.”

In 2008, North Georgia finished the regular season 8-7-2 overall and 5-3 in the Peach Belt Conference as they hosted their first-ever PBC Tournament game. The Lady Saints finished the regular season 4th in the conference, their highest finish since entering the NCAA four years ago.

“We will be far more dangerous at the forward position and have much more depth in the back with these additions. As pleased as we are with their soccer ability we are even more impressed with their character and academic backgrounds.”
