WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Women's Soccer Coach Dave Nolan announced today that Chloe Knott has signed a national-letter-of-intent to attend the University and play on the Hilltop. She joins a class of eight other student-athletes joining the Hoyas for the 2014-15 academic year.
Knott, who was born in England, currently plays for Three Kings FC in New Zealand and was a member that country's U-16 national program.
"Chloe is a technical midfield player who plays both sides of the ball very well," Nolan said. "Her experiences with the New Zealand national program and the opportunity to play in this summer's U-20 World Cup will help her tremendously as she adjusts to the college game.
"She will give us greater depth and flexibility in how we hope to play this fall. I am looking forward to seeing her contribute and develop over the next four years."
The incoming group of nine student-athletes joins a program that returns 20 letterwinners from last year's team, which reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament. In the last seven years under Nolan, Georgetown has won 101 games, made four NCAA Tournament appearances, reached the 2010 Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament and reached the semifinals of the BIG EAST Tournament four times.
Knott joins a class that includes Rachel Corboz (Green Brook, N.J./Pingry/PDA Slammers), Ali Lonner (Scarsdale, N.Y./Scarsdale/Quickstrike FC), Leah McCullough (Sudbury, Mass./Lincoln-Sudbury/FC Stars of Mass), Taylor Pak (Wellington, Fla./American Heritage/AC Delray/FC Florida), Julia Reshke (Moraga, Calif./Campolindo/Lamorinda FC), Heather Rolls (Fenton, Mich./Powers Catholic/Michigan Hawks), Drew Topor (Madison, N.J./Pingry/PDA Ginga) and Elizabeth Wenger (Lititz, Pa./Lititz/PA Classics 95).
Georgetown closed out the 2013 season with a 16-3-2 record, tying the school single season record for wins in a season, set last year when the Hoyas went 16-4-3. The Hoyas were selected to the play in the NCAA Tournament for the third time in four years and reached the second round. The team set a school record with 58 goals scored and was ranked among the top three in the country in scoring offense.
