Marshall University women’s soccer signs pair of transfers from East Carolina

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall University women’s soccer coach Michael Swan announced the signings of Kathrynn Gonzalez and Lauren Wheeler-Hollis. Both Gonzalez and Wheeler-Hollis are transferring from East Carolina University.

“We want to add quality characters to our program, just as much as talent, and these are two young ladies who have impressed us from the very start of this process,” Swan said. “We are delighted they will be joining us and looking forward to seeing them excel at Marshall.”

Gonzalez appeared in 25 matches for the Pirates in two seasons, making a pair of starts. The Pocono Summit, Pa., native scored her first collegiate goal against Radford in 2018 and helped ECU to its first AAC Tournament Quarterfinal appearance since 2015 by burying a penalty kick against SMU during the same season.

“Kathrynn is an exciting attacking player who brings a great soccer IQ to our program. She is an exciting player who will add to our attacking options going forward. Kat will give us a whole new dynamic in the final third of the field.”

Wheeler-Hollis, a native of Jacksonville, Fla., played in 17 contest during her time in Greenville. Last season, she scored a goal in a 5-0 victory over UNC Asheville and fired a pair of shots against VMI.

“Lauren’s versatility is a massive bonus for us. She has played in a variety of roles at ECU, but we really like her as a defender. Lauren’s very comfortable with the ball at her feet and a very good a defender. Lauren’s also not a stranger to Marshall as her mom is an alum here so we know that we are adding someone who already has strong ties to our community and campus.”
