Women's Soccer Inks Two For 2015
Catawba College women’s soccer coach Michael Swan has announced his 2015 recruiting class. Signing with the Catawba Indians are Hailey Wright, of Statesville, N.C., and Shayna Passantino, of Charlotte, N.C. Both will be both joining the Catawba Indians for the 2015 season.
Wright comes to Catawba from South Iredell High School and Lake Norman Soccer Club. For both programs, Wright is a key component of defense and is able to play in various positions across the back line.
“Hailey is a very solid defender, who is going to be a great ball winner for us,” stated Swan. “We have seen Hailey play in various roles across the back line that excites us, but more than anything is her ability to not get beat often by fast and physical forwards.”
Shayna Passantino is a product of South Mecklenburg High school and Charlotte Soccer Club. She has played a big role for both programs in the center midfield.
“Shayna has a great engine and can go box to box all day long,” commented Swan. “Shayna again is a great ball winner and has great distribution. I am very excited to see Shayna in the college game because I think she will challenge our conference opponents immediately.”
Please welcome both Shayna and Hailey to the Catawba women’s soccer family.
