RICHMOND – After announcing their recruiting class a few weeks ago, the VCU Women's Soccer program and Head Coach Lindsey Martin have announced one more addition to the class. Sophomore transfer Morgan Springer has been announced as the final addition to the Class of 2017, as announced by Martin and the coaching staff on Thursday afternoon.
No stranger to the college game, Springer comes to Richmond as a sophomore from the University of West Georgia. She started every game in net for the Wolves, playing every minute during the season. She finished with only allowing 24 goals, making 74 saves while facing 275 shots. That mark ranked her sixth all-time at West Georgia for best ratio faced in a single season. Her .755 save average also ranked seventh best in a season all-time. She also tied the single season shutout record, recording six as a true freshman. She tied for second in the conference in shutouts, and her final goals against average of 1.23 is the best single season average in school history.
Prior to West Georgia, Springer was a standout at Catoctin High School in Maryland, where she led Catoctin to the second round of the Maryland High School State Tournament. She also played for Bethesda Soccer Club, and will be majoring in Exercise Science at VCU.
Springer will join the nine-player recruiting class coming in for 2017 that features CiCi Fox, Lauren Griffiths, Lyndsey Gutzmer, Kimberly Ito, Samantha Jerabek, Karen Lohrmann, Ellen McAdams, Caleigh Michael, and Rachel Moody.
