ATHENS -

Concord University women's soccer Head Coach Stefani Workman announced the signing of six student-athletes for the 2013 season Friday.

"I'm really excited about the experience this class brings to the field," Workman said. "They have all played at a high level on successful teams that will bring a winning mentality to Concord Women's soccer.

This class has a little bit of everything thing in it; flair, hard workers, leadership, and most of all just quality character people. I can't wait to get them on campus so they can enrich the atmosphere that this team already has."

Joining the Mountain Lions in 2013 will be: Kiana Brown (Chesapeake Beach, Md. / Northern), Emily Cole (Scott Depot, W. Va. / Winfield), Lacie Geisel (Denton, Md. – North Caroline), Cassidy Maynard (Scott Depot, W. Va. – Winfield), Olivia Reilly (Owings, Md. / Northern) and Kristin Twomey (Raleigh, N.C. - Cardinal Gibbons).

The six women recruiting class consists of three defenders, two goalies and one forward. Geographically, the class features three athletes from Maryland, two from West Virginia and one from North Carolina. Cole and Maynard played together at West Virginia prep powerhouse Winfield while Brown and Reilly were teammates at Northern.

Concord went 10-7-2 and advanced to the semifinals of the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament under third-year head coach Stefani Workman. The women's soccer program has recorded six consecutive winning-seasons and has had just two losing seasons in the last 12 years.
