Lamoni, IA - Head women's soccer coach Fred Wagenaar is pleased to announce the signing of Port Perry, Ontario, Canada native, Annalise Buchowski to the 2013 women's soccer program.
Buchowski is a product of Port Perry High School where the 5'9" goal keeper was also a multi-sport athlete. Besides her efforts on the soccer field she also participated on the girls' wrestling and cross country teams.
"Annalise is a great signing for us," says Wagenaar. "We have one of the top keepers in the NAIA with Stefany Castano Cardozo, and I think Annalise can step in and maintain that high standard. We are very fortunate to have her coming to our team.
"Annalise is extremely hard working, quick and brave, and has good hands; in other words all of the necessary skills that a great keeper needs. She is dedicated to her craft, loves to work out, and will provide great competition for Stephany. Annalise is also a real team player, with a great personality and will be one of the players that make a strong contribution to a wonderful spirit of the Lady Yellowjackets."
Aside from her efforts in athletics, Buchowski was also involved in Jazzmerize Jazz Choir, Senior Chamber Ensemble and Concert Choir.
Buchowski, the daughter of Steve Buchowski and Brenda Rawn, will major in Athletic Training during her time on the hill.
Welcome, Annalise, to the Graceland athletics family.
