Head Coach Adam Pearce and the Spring Hill College Athletics Department announced the signing of sisters Lorie and Katie Pendergast from Cor Jesu Academy in St. Louis, Mo., to the Lady Badgers soccer team on Wednesday morning.
The twins were members of Cor Jesu's District Championship team in 2006 and they both were selected All Conference in 2008. The pair also played for the St. Louis Soccer Club where they appeared in the Missouri State Cup Finals in 2004 and 2006. Off the soccer field, they captured the Missouri State Field Hockey Championship together in 2007.
Pearce welcomed his new players with high praise, "Katie (left) is a hard working and rugged player that allows her technical skills to
shine while still being able to physically take over a match. Her energy and positive attitude will make an immediate contribution to the Badgers starting in '08. Lorie (right) is going to be a great addition to the Badgers for the upcoming season, too. She is a very sound technical player with a real heart and spirit to compete. I look forward to working with her in the upcoming seasons."
Both student-athletes graduated with honors and Lorie qualified for the National Honor Society.
