Alyssa Edwards (Canal Winchester), Savannah Morgan (Wilmington), Mikayla “MJ” Williams (Springfield) and Brianna Nauman (Worthington) will join the Blue Knights for the 2017-18 academic year.

We are getting better with this class so far, with more to come.”

Morgan also set a new standard for most goals (27) and points (61) in a season, while registering single-game records for goals (7), points (15) and assists (4).

Williams was team captain of the winningest class in Shawnee High School history with a four-year record of 47-18-12. Williams scored 25 career goals and helped guide the Braves to three district final appearances, while twice earning All-Central Buckeye Conference recognition.

Nauman earned three varsity letters playing at Thomas Worthington High School. She earned All-Ohio Capital Conference Honorary Special Mention and received her squad’s Defensive Most Valuable Player Award as a senior.
