Holovach signs with TCU women's soccer
Jan. 5, 2006
FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU head soccer coach Dan Abdalla announced the signing of Natalie Holovach to a National Letter of Intent. Holovach, a midfielder, will transfer to TCU this semester after a season with the Alabama Crimson Tide and practice with the Frogs in spring drills.
Holovach, a native of Highland Village, Texas, saw limited action in her freshman campaign with the Crimson Tide, appearing in only seven contests due to a foot injury. She made two starts and tallied one assist as a freshman at Alabama. As a prep, Holovach played soccer at Marcus High School, where she led her team to the 2002 district championship and the state championship in 2005. She was a member of the Dallas Texans, the nation's fourth ranked club team. While with the Texans, she was teammates with current Frogs Caroline Starns, Courtney Brill and Sara Schneider. They led the Texans to the 2004-05 Premier League Championship.
"I'm excited to have Natalie joining our squad," said Abdalla. "Every word out of her mouth has something to do with winning, and I love that attitude. My goal from day one has been to bring players in who just love playing and competing, and from the first time I spoke with Natalie I had that feeling about her. When I asked her old teammates about her, all they could talk about was how she was always the one sliding and tackling, setting the tone in practices. Besides such a great attitude, she brings the speed and tenacity we needed to add on our widths. I have no questions that she'll be a great addition to our squad."
Holovach will be a sophomore with the Horned Frogs next season.
