FRESNO TRIO COMPLETES
SOCCER RECRUITING CLASS
what he calls a "strong recruiting class," coach Josh Lenarz '98 added
a trio of West Coast players to the women's soccer team whom he believes
will help the Trolls become even more formidable on the field.
Meigan Soo, Amanda Danner,
and Colleen Derrick will bring their talent from Fresno, California, to
Trinity next fall after signing national letters of intent to play for
the Trolls. They have played the last two years together at Fresno City
"They will be terrific additions
to our team because of the experience and maturity," said Lenarz, who will
enter his third season at the helm. "They are ecstatic about moving to
the Chicago area to finish their education and join a team that is becoming
a top-level Christian college program."
The Fresno City Rams were
12-8 in 2003 after registering a 16-3-4 mark the previous year. Soo, a
forward from Fresno, led the team in scoring during her two seasons. Danner,
a native of Sanger, California, was named 2003 Defensive Player of the
Year in the Central Valley Conference. Derrick, also a defender, relies
on her speed and quickness to disrupt opposing attack schemes.
"The skills that Meigan,
Amanda, and Colleen bring to the table are ingredients that I think will
blend well with the lineup we already have," said Lenarz, who returns 10
players from his squad that won 11 games last season. "I expect those three
to play important roles in our quest to earn a berth in the NCCAA finals
in Kissimmee, Florida. I'm very pleased to have them aboard."
