I would like to welcome 4 new players to the Flames! Sara Berens, Cindy Fibich, Courtney Pearcy and Jessica Caron.
Sara is a transfer student from Hastings College where she played mostly outside midfield. Sara will be joining our nursing program. She played her high school ball at Pius X in Lincoln.
Cindy is a transfer student from Briar Cliff and is also going to be a nurse. Cindy played at Gretna High School.
Courtney is not really a new face, she went through pre-season with in 2008 and then decided to not play for personal reasons. She is back and wants to prove to herself and her teammates that she can make an awesome contribution to the Flames. Courtney went to Lewis Central in Council Bluffs and then played 2 years for Iowa Western Community College. She is majoring in early childhood education.
Our final new player for CSM is Jessica Caron. Jessica hails from from Bryan High School and is just about ready to play again following an acl tear.
The above fab four join the following 2009 recruits
-Raeleigh Withey, Ft. Collins, Colorado--Rocky Mountain High School

-Megan Tuenge, North Platte, Nebraska--North Platte High School

I can't wait for the season to begin.
