LIMA - The University of Northwestern Ohio recently signed the first player in program history, Darcey James, a defender from Worthing, United Kingdom. She competes for the Under-19 England National Team and the British College team.
"We are very excited to welcome Darcey, and she is now a part of history at UNOH," UNOH women's soccer coach Stuart Gore said. "Darcey's club and international experience will help our team move forward in the right direction, and her leadership qualities will impact our team tremendously. Her exceptional work in the classroom also embodies the type of student-athlete we look for here at UNOH."
James plays for Worthing College and the Brighton Hove Albion club team, experiences which have led to her national recognition.
The UNOH women's soccer team begins play in the fall 2013 season. The Lady Racers will compete in the NAIA and Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference.
