Eastern Kentucky women’s soccer reveals 2019 recruiting class

RICHMOND, Ky. – The Eastern Kentucky University soccer team has signed seven student-athletes in the class of 2019, first-year head coach Matt Cosinuke announced.

Five of the signees – Audrey Anderson, MJ Anest, Sidney Kemp, Maddy Lemery and Abigail Proctor – signed in the fall. Cosinuke added two more signees – Rylie Jucker and Ali Kirk – this spring.

“We are excited to get the chance to work with this group of young women,” Cosinuke said. “They will add depth, athleticism and talent to our existing family. We’ve been lucky enough to have watched these girls on the recruiting trail the past few years, so we have a good grasp on who they are as players. It will take time to build strong relationships off the field, but there is no better time for that than the grind of a season. We are looking forward to their arrival.”
