Georgetown College women’s soccer recently wrapped up one of the best seasons in program history and with her first 2016 signee coach Leah Crews Castleman hopes to continue to see her team continue to build upon that foundation
Cleome Kerseg is a midfielder from Half Moon Bay, Calif. She is a four-year starter for her high school and received second-team Peninsula Athletic League honors as a junior.
“Cleome attended my summer ID camp this past July where she performed extremely well,” Castleman said. “I think she will bring a spark of energy to our midfield where we are losing senior standout Ariel Howell.
“Cleome is a very technical player with great vision and speed. She brings tremendous athleticism and is dominant in the air, which is key to running the midfield at this level. I am excited to add her to my roster for 2016.”
Also helping Castleman make the connection to the West Coast is former assistant Julio Serrano, a graduate of Half Moon Bay High School. Serrano returned to the California area recently and served as the Cougars assistant coach a season ago and just took over as head coach.
“Cleome controls the pace of the game, is good technically and she can hold the ball up and give us chances, as well as create chances for herself,” Serrano told the Half Moon Bay Review when he was interviewed about taking over the Cougars program.
In California, the Cougars play soccer in the winter so Kerseg’s season is just getting underway.
