Coach Terrill on Chelsea Frankeny: “Chelsea is a player we got on to late in the 2012 class. There’s a couple of players we got on to late. Our recruiting didn’t quite go in a straight line, but I’m really excited about Chelsea. She’s a kid that played in Charleston and moved up to Wilmington. A lot of the kids in our program know her and the kids coming in know her as well. She’s a proven goal-scorer. We saw Chelsea play against Ashley Lowdermilk who went to IMG and she was tearing it up. We’re really excited to get her. She’s got a real scoring touch. She came to our ID camp and scored tons of goals, so we’re really excited about her up top and what kind of production she can have. We’ve got Toni (Lashley) coming back. We’ve got Chelsea (Phillips) coming back from an ACL. We have Morgann (Wood) and Emilia (Faubert). We’ve got a lot of people that we think we can put in the mix. It’s a good forward corps and I think that she’s a player who’s going to step in and do really well for us."
