SHREVEPORT—Centenary women’s soccer coach Chase Wooten has announced the additions of Carissa Barney and Caitlin Crawford to the 2005 Ladies roster. Barney and Crawford join eight previous signees to take the total number of new players for the upcoming season to 10. The team lost seven seniors at the conclusion of the 2004 campaign.


Carissa Barney is a sweeper out of Colleyville Heritage High School in Colleyville, Tex., that Wooten has become very familiar with. The second year coach likes her strong tackling and her ability to read the game at a Division I level.


“We have been watching Carissa since Thanksgiving and have been impressed each time we have seen her play since,” said Wooten. “We have high expectations for her as a freshman to come in as a center back and compete for a starting position right away.”


Caitlin Crawford is a goalkeeper from Byrd High School in Shreveport, La. She comes to Centenary after earning All-City and All-District accolades as a prep standout.


“Caitlin is someone that we have watched over the years mature into a very nice goalie,” said Wooten. “She has lots of accolades and will give us the depth in the goalkeeping position that we were looking for in 2005.”


Centenary is a member of the Mid-Continent Conference and is the smallest Division I school in the nation with an enrollment of 890. Located in Shreveport, La., Centenary is the oldest college west of the Mississippi River having been founded in 1825.
