Creighton women’s soccer coach Ross Paule focused on bringing in technically skilled and hard-working players, adding 14 players for next season.

Joining the Bluejays will be Haylee Blach (Littleton, Colo.), Elizabeth Bolland (Plymouth, Wis.), Jaylin Bosak (Millard West), Ashleigh Cearlock (Springfield, Ill.), Kyleigh Crist (Parker, Colo.), McKenzie Graybill (Lakeville, Minn.), Kylin Grubb (Odessa, Mo.), Callie Hawkins (Gretna), Taryn Jakubowski (Rockford, Ill.), Kate Johnson (Ankeny, Iowa), Cassie Legband (Elkhorn South), Caeley Lordemann (Greeley, Colo.), Hannah Miller (Lenexa, Kan.) and Alyssa Swift (Providence, R.I.).

“We have a very large group of very talented players coming in the fall 2016,” Paule said. “We have searched for young women who we believe will make a difference in our program to help us build toward and achieve our big goals.’’

Blach is the younger sister of former Bluejay hurler Ty Blach. Legband led the Storm to the Class B state championship last year, defeating Hawkins’ Gretna squad.

“This class will shape our program for the next several years and I am excited by the potential of each one of them and what they can bring,” Paule said. “I believe we have the leaders and talent within our returning roster, that will enable this large class to step right in and help launch us to new levels and take big steps forward in competing at a higher level that will be fun to watch.”
