I spent most of my day dealing with the Washington Huskies football recruiting class.
But this was signing day for other sports, too, including UW women's soccer.
Here's a bit of their news release:
The University of Washington women's soccer team signed four prep standouts to National Letters of Intent on Wednesday, head coach Lesle Gallimore announced.
The four players who will join the Huskies for the 2009 season are defender/forward Louise Albin (Shoreline, Wash.), midfielder Kelsea Brajkovich (Thousand Oaks, Calif.), midfielder Kellie Welch (Los Altos, Calif.) and forward Jessie Young (Surrey, British Columbia).
While the Huskies lost just five players and no full-time starters from last season's team which went 15-6-1, Gallimore is excited about the specific needs the four players will fill.
"Without having too many seniors leaving our team, we set out in 2009 to improve our squad with very specific qualities and weren't looking necessarily for quantity," Washington head coach Lesle Gallimore said. "With this foursome we accomplished our goals. We have added four extremely athletic and versatile players to our Husky family. All four can play on the left or right side of the field comfortably, all four can play two or three positions successfully and all four have the athleticism to compete in the Pac-10, which is arguably the best women's soccer conference in the country. In addition to their athletic accomplishments, all four young women are outstanding students and will add to the competiveness of the student-body at Washington."
