The recruiting class includes Walsh Jesuit High School senior Brianna Kanz and three players from Las Vegas , Nev. – Hailey Kirkwood, Meghan Brascia and Lexa Green.
The class also features Alexandra Frawley, from Pennsylvania , and three other Ohioans – Carli Pimm, Karina Atkinson and Danielle Reymann.
“I'm very happy that these student-athletes decided to choose The University of Akron,” Pfau said. “The staff has done a tremendous job bringing this class together. Every year we have tried to build the program and improve it. This class will surely help us do that. I am very excited about this class and can't wait to see them playing in our brand new stadium next fall. Each recruit comes from a great club and all have top level club experience.”
Also joining the Zips in 2010 is Kent State transfer Rachel Dennis, a four-year starter at Jackson High School and 2009 graduate. Dennis earned All-Ohio honors and was the Federal League Player of the Year.
Kanz was four-year letter winner at Walsh and helped the Warriors win the Division I state championship in 2010. The Warriors shutout 52 opponents and compiled a 66-8-11 record during her four years.
“This class will add speed and athleticism to an experienced roster,” Pfau said.
