MOUNT VERNON, Ohio - The Mount Vernon Nazarene University women’s soccer team has added another key recruit to its roster for the 2006 season with the addition of Angie Misamore.
Misamore, a defender from Findlay, Ohio, scored six goals and added three assists as a senior at Findlay High School. For her efforts, she was named the Greater Buckeye Conference Player of the Year and selected to the All-District First Team and the GBC First Team. As a junior, Misamore, who was a twice selected as her team’s Most Valuable Player, was named to the GBC First Team and the All-District Second Team as well as earning her team’s Defensive Player of the Year award.
"The team and I are very excited about Angie’s commitment to the Lady Cougars,” said MVNU head coach Jonathan Meade. "She has been an excellent student and a hard-working team player in high school, and I know that she will continue to exhibit those exceptional qualities as a Lady Cougar.”
"Angie is a versatile player, but she has garnered most of her accolades as a defender,” Meade added. "I expect that she will come in and compete immediately for playing time as a freshman. She is a tough, scrappy player who will add some good speed to our back line. I look forward to working with Angie over the next four years.”
In addition to playing soccer at Findlay High School and for three different club teams (Findlay Soccer Club, Pacesetter Soccer Club, and Findlay Premier), Misamore has received the Academic Achievement Award and the Scholar-Athlete Award all four years. She is also active in Spanish Honor Society.
"There are several reasons why I chose MVNU,” said Misamore of her college choice. "I am choosing to attend MVNU because I feel it will provide me with a wonderful education, a chance to grow spiritually, and an opportunity to contribute to the women’s soccer team.”
MVNU finished the 2005 season with a 12-6-1 overall record that included a runner-up finish in the American Mideast Conference South Division. The Lady Cougars have posted a 80-39-3 record in their six seasons as a varsity sport with two AMC South Division titles and one National Christian College Athletic Association national championship.
