MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. - Central Michigan field hockey coach Molly Pelowski announced on Monday the signing to National Letters of Intent two players.
Alli Huddleson of Douglassville, Pa., and Cara Satre of Davis, Calif., will join the program for the 2017 season.
Huddleson and Satre bring to six the number of signees in the incoming class. They join Taryn Damm of Dexter, Callie Quinn of Stafford, Va., Anna Riesenberg of Davis, Calif., and Keelin Broeker of Monument, Colo., who signed in December.
"Our current student-athletes have set an excellent example and foundation for our 2017 recruiting class," said Pelowski, who is entering her third season in charge of the program. "I am very excited that our program has improved so greatly. As we draw closer to the start of the 2017 season, I am happy that we will complement our current roster with a fine group of young women.
"We have worked hard to build our 2017 recruiting class and these young women will help contribute to the foundation we are building. There is so much to look forward to in 2017."
Huddleson, a defender/mid, was a four-year standout at Berks Catholic High School and played on USA Futures from 2013-15.
"Alli is a wonderful young woman who will bring her positive attitude, incredible work ethic, and hockey skill to continue to elevate our program," Pelowski said. "Alli is a very skilled defender who will contribute to our team defense with her intensity and determination."
Satre and Riesenberg bring to four the number of Davis products on the Chippewas' 2017 roster. Emily Barber, a senior-to-be, and Sarina Buchanan, who will be a sophomore, also hail from the California city, located just outside Sacramento. All four played at Davis Senior High School.
"Cara comes to us from our recruiting hotbed in northern California," Pelowski said. "Cara's skill and attacking mindset will add an additional weapon to our attacking line. She is a well-rounded athlete who will be a great addition to our roster."
