Bailey Elder commits to Pioneers for 2011 season

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. --- Tusculum College women's soccer coach Mike Joy has announced that Bailey Elder has committed to play for the Pioneers beginning with the 2011 season.

Elder is a 5-8 central defender/midfielder and attends Boone County High School in northern Kentucky. She was a four-year starter, a two-year captain, a four-time All-Conference selection and named All-Northern Kentucky three times. As a senior, Elder was named to the NKAC All Star Team and competed in the Cincinnati All-City All Star Game. She was a member of the Kentucky state and regional ODP teams and Super Y team, and played club soccer for the Kings Soccer Academy U-17 Elite Team and competed on various MRL league teams.

"We are very excited to sign Bailey as we anticipate she will compete right away. She is a strong central player and can help us fill the void of all those central players we graduated," said Joy. "She is technically sound and a true ball winner. She has the potential and character to hopefully one day be a leader on this team."

The Pioneers finished 9-9-1 overall and 3-5-1 in the South Atlantic Conference in 2010, advancing to the SAC semifinals for the 10th time in 12 seasons.

Tusculum College, located in Greeneville, Tenn., is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church, USA and is a NCAA Division II member of the South Atlantic Conference which is comprised of ten colleges and universities in Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina.
