TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State women’s soccer coach Erika True announced Friday the signing of eight members for the Sycamores.

“It’s a really exciting day for the Indiana State women’s soccer program as we sign these eight players to join our program,” said True, who’s in her sixth season at the helm. “We’re coming off a great season and moving in a positive direction so I know these eight will help make an impact next season.”

The class consists of four Indiana natives, two from Missouri and one from Wisconsin and Ohio.

“I am also thrilled that we’ve signed four Indiana players, the largest during my tenure here,” True continued. “We’ve signed players from the heart of the Midwest and I know they will help us compete at the highest level in the Missouri Valley Conference.”

The signees are Lyana Burrink of Lake Central High School; Cara Calland of Westerville, Ohio; Elly Freesmeier of Florissant, Mo.; Kayla Schlosser of Germantown, Wis.; Alex Schmitz of O’Fallon, Mo.; Kasey Wallace of Borden; Lauren Weigel of Noblesville; and Lauren Wyatt of Floyd Central High School.

They join a Sycamore squad that posted its best season in program history in 2013 with a 10-9 overall record and 4-2 mark in the MVC. ISU finished second overall in the MVC and advanced to the MVC tournament championship game for the second consecutive season.
