Chris Huston says: "Katelyn is one of the most versatile players coming out of Region II this year. Katelyn has the ability to play on our back line or in our midfield. She also has the ability to make difficult situations seem effortless because of her amazing work ethic and passion for the game. Not only is Katelyn a great soccer player, but her leadership and enthusiasm makes her an incredible teammate. We are extremely lucky to have Katelyn on our team."
