FORT MYERS, Fla. - FGCU women's soccer coach Jim Blakenship announced the addition of two student athletes today. Casey Lademann and KC Correllus joined the 2008 Eagle soccer team and are already on campus and enrolled in classes this spring.
Lademann transfers in as a freshman coming from Florida State. She helped the Seminoles to an 18-6-3 record and appearance in the National Championship. She played in 10 games, and scored her first collegiate goal on September 18, 2007 against the University of North Florida at the Seminole Soccer Complex in Tallahassee.
Prior to Florida State, Lademann played on the Florida state ODP team from 2002-06, and was a Southeast Regional pool member for three years (2004-06). She was also named Offensive Player of the Year and Volusia/Flagler County Player of the Year in each of her junior and senior years at Palm Coast High School.
Correllus transfers in as a freshman, also coming from Florida State. She looks to begin her first year of collegiate soccer in the 2008 season as an Eagle. In 2007 Correllus led Satellite High School to a State Championship, and was nominated team MVP.
"We anticipate them to make an immediate impact and help us build our program, said head coach Jim Blakenship. They are two very talented athletes, and they're a great fit for our program.”
