OMAHA, Neb. - Creighton women's soccer head coach Bruce Erickson announced
the addition of tranfers Kirstyn Corder (New Hampshire) and Addison Nokels
(Iowa State) to the Jays squad for the 2013 spring season.
Corder is a 5-6 midfielder from Overland Park, Kan. This fall with the Wildcats, Corder appeared
in 19 matches, including 17
starts. An America East All-Rookie Team
selection, Corder finished the season with five goals and three assists. Corder led New Hampshire in points (13),
goals, assists, shots (38), shots on goal (20) and game-winning goals (2).
A graduate of Burke HS, Nokels is a 5-3 forward from Omaha,
Neb. Over two seasons at Iowa State,
Nokels appeared in a combined 21 matches.
In 2012, she saw action in 11 of the Cyclones' 20 contests. Nokels recorded one goal and one assist in
2012 and also had an assist in 2011.
Addision comes to Creighton having played in Morrison stadium last
season in the season-opening game that saw Iowa State down Creighton, 1-0 in overtime.
"In Kirstyn we are
adding a dynamic player to our attack who can score goals. I believe both
players will make an immediate impact to our team," said Erickson. "Addison
brings two years of experience as a college player to a young team. She is very
talented and and can play a number of positions."
"We are excited
to add two players with great ability and character to our team this spring.
Ironically, we were interested in both players during the initial recruitment
process prior to college," noted Erickson.
