Head Coach Adam Pearce and the Spring Hill College Athletics Department announced the signing of forward Abby Galen of Cor Jesu Academy in St. Louis, Mo., to the Lady Badgers soccer team on Tuesday morning.
"I am very pleased with the competitive level of the incoming class this year," Pearce remarked. "Abby is a prime example of a skilled and athletic player that makes the incoming class so strong. Abby is quick, sharp technically and has an awareness of the space and players around her. With plenty of hard-work this summer Abby could enter the 2008 season competing for a starting position with the Lady Badgers."
As a junior, Galen was the second leading scorer for her Cor Jesu squad. She also won a Missouri State Championship in Field Hockey as a junior.
Galen, a member of the National Honor Society, graduated high school with High Honors as she maintained a GPA above 3.75 for all eight semesters. She was an active member of the CARE Organization, as well.
