Rider Signs 10th Recruit

LAWRENCEVILLE—The Rider University women’s soccer team had its highest winningest percentage (.676) in program history this past fall.

The bad news is that Rider graduated 10 players from that team.

The good news is that Rider just signed its tenth recruit for 2013.

Caroline Healy of Singapore comes to Rider by way of Dublin Ireland, and will be a member of the 2013 Bronc soccer team.

“Caroline is a very technical attack minded player who brings significant international experience to our program,” said Rider head coach Drayson Hounsome, who already has signed three other players from England and New Zealand for next year.

“Caroline was part of the successful Asian Soccer Academy competing throughout Asia until she moved to Ireland at 15,” Hounsome said.

In Ireland, Healy has led Alexandra College to the 2011 & 2012 Leinster Cup and at the club level played for Peamount United in the Women's National League and the UEFA Champions League qualifiers.

At the international level, Healy represented the Republic of Ireland in the U.17 UEFA Championships in Macedonia and Norway last year. Healy is currently playing for DLR Waves in the National Women's League and training with the Ireland U.19 team.

“Her ability to create goals, score goals and her experience playing in the U.17 UEFA Championships last year will play an important role in the future success of Rider women's soccer,” Hounsome said

Healy joins forward Hollie Kelsh of Lancashire, England, goalkeeper Bethany-May Howard of Glastonbury, England, center midfielder Victoria Maley of Massapequa, NY, defender Heather Maierle of Wantagh, NY, forward Michelle Iacono of Merrick, NY, forward Ashley Batista of Monroe, NJ, midfielder Priscilla Santos of Glendora, California, midfielder Sorren Henderson of Christchruch, New Zealand and midfielder Teresa Berg of Bel Air, MD, who all signed on with Rider in the winter.

Rider tied for fourth place in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference with a 5-3-1 a conference mark and compiled an overall record of 10-4-3, Rider's most wins since the 2004 season.
