Two transfer students have been added to Trinity’s women’s soccer program, Head Coach Tim Colvin announced today.
Lauren Nolte from Everett Community College and Darrian Trisko from Edmonds Community College both enrolled at Trinity this spring after finishing their JC careers and signing with the Eagles over the winter break.
Recruiting transfer students has been a priority for the program, as graduation will take its toll on the roster in May. In total, six women will graduate from the program at the end of the 2013-14 academic year. Those players are the first four-year graduates for the program that began in 2010, and the fact that women’s soccer at Trinity is as strong as it is today is due in large part to the work they’ve put in.
“These two are a fine example of the discipline and work ethic that we are seeking this year in our recruiting. Nolte and Trisko are talented players who had a big role to play in the success of their community college programs. We’re thrilled to have them here,” Colvin said.
Lauren Nolte, a defender, joins the Eagles after a two-year stint at Everett Community College. She finished her career as team captain for the Trojans. As a prep athlete at Marysville Pilchuck High School, she was a second team all-Wesco selection and a three-year letter winner. She will major in Intercultural Studies at Trinity.
“Lauren is a highly focused and talented individual who will no doubt make an immediate impact for us on and off the field. She has been a leader on every team she’s played for and we think that leadership will pay huge dividends here with a big freshman class expected this fall,” Colvin said.
Darrian Trisko, joins the Trinity program via the Community College system after playing two seasons for Edmonds Community College. A Snohomish High School graduate, Trisko will major in Psychology at Trinity. When if she has any hobbies outside of soccer, Trisko pointed to her soccer hobby so clearly that Colvin knew he had found a committed athlete.
“We had a need both for more defenders and for some versatility on our roster – she helps with both,” said Colvin.
“She is a strong defender and a very good midfielder. But, most importantly, she’s a competitor and so no matter where she is on the pitch, you know she’s going to play tough competitive soccer and that’s the brand on play that we want to establish here.”
The Eagles are well into the 2014 recruiting cycle, but have a lot more aid to give to new athletes. If you are interested in joining the program, please fill out a prospective player questionnaire.
