March 9, 2006

BLACKSBURG, Va. - Virginia Tech women's soccer coach Kelly Cagle announced Thursday that Leesburg, Va., native Kristi Sieber has signed a National Letter of Intent to play soccer for the Hokies.

Sieber, a 5-foot defender from Loudoun County High School, earned All-Metro Honorable Mention and first team All-Extra Loudoun/Fauquier by The Washington Post last season. In 2003, Sieber led her high school team to a 20-1-1 record and a state championship game appearance. She has played for the Sterling Nova Premier Pride club team the past three season, leading them to back-to-back WAGS Division I championships.

"Kristi attended our camp last summer which allowed us to spend an extended period of time with her," Cagle said. "It was pure joy working with her at camp for that time, and it allowed us to get to see first-hand what she could offer our program. We are very excited that she will join our team because Kristi is very composed on the ball. She could be a play-making force for us either in midfield or out of the back, and she also has ball-winning abilities that will make her a two-way player."

Sieber joins fellow incoming freshmen Robin Chidester, Julian Johnson, Emily Jukich, Kelly Mitchell, Kylie Stankovics and Megan Strawther as the seventh member of the 2006 freshman class.

"Krisit came back onto campus last week with her family and it was pure joy spending time with them," Cagle said. "She will be a welcomed addition to the Virginia Tech women's soccer family."
