LOS ANGELES - The unveiling of the 11-member 2014 LMU women's soccer recruiting class continues with a pair of goalkeeper in Charlee Pruitt and Hannah Harrah, who will bring depth to the Lions' competitive training environment.
We have had some tremendously gifted goalkeepers throughout the years at LMU," said LMU Head Coach Michelle Myers. "We have two goalkeepers joining us in 2014 who we expect to carry on that tradition. Both of these goalkeepers bring different strengths to the position and we are anxious to see them jump into the mix with our other two goalkeepers to create a very competitive training environment."
Pruitt brings depth to the Lions' goalkeeping core after four successful seasons at Alta Loma High School. A four-time All-Baseline League selection and three-time team captain, Pruitt recorded more than 60 shutouts during her four years as a varsity starter. She captured Baseline League MVP honors in 2014 as Alta Loma also clinched the league championship.
"Charlee is a tremendous shot stopper, who organizes and reads the game well," said Myers. "She brings a great deal of experience as she comes from a highly competitive soccer environment. We expect Charlee to come in and challenge for playing time immediately."
Pruitt also plays for the West Coast FC which won four Surf Cup titles, including three straight from 2007-09. The club also reached the Elite Club National League (ECNL) finals in 2013.Pruitt has been involved with the Cal South Pro+/ODP Team from 2009-13. Pruitt won two ODP National Championships with the Cal South 96 girls team.
A four-sport athlete at San Marcos Senior High School, Harrah will bring her goalkeeping skills to LMU this fall. She competed in soccer, volleyball, track and swimming during her prep career, shinning in the net for SMSHS where she earned All-Channel League, all-city and all-county honors all four years.
"Hannah is a goalkeeper with a tremendous amount of athleticism," Myers said. "Her ability to deal with crosses along with her distribution gives her a great foundation for becoming one of the next top keepers for our program."
Harrah has also competed for the Santa Barbara Soccer Club where she has served as a team captain for seven years.
