Head Coach Adam Pearce and the Spring Hill College Athletics Department announced the signing of Nina Caputa of St. Louis, Mo., to the Lady Badgers soccer team on Tuesday morning. Caputa is a defensive player from St. Joseph High School.
Pearce commented, "Nina is a very exciting defensive player who will look to fill the void of our graduating seniors. Nina is a physical, hard-nosed player who brings energy to her tackling and plays old-school football. I am very pleased with her commitment to training as well as her dedication and motivation to help our program continue to move forward."
Caputa has been a member of the J.B. Marine (formerly Coca-Cola Wave) Soccer Club since 1997 and in 2004 her team won the Missouri State Soccer Cup Championship. In 2005, her squad won the M.C. United College Showcase Shootout Championship and in 2003 they captured First Place at the BFC Metro Fall Classic.
