Lady Railsplitters Welcome Maddy Nagy And Olivia Thompson To The 2012 Squad

HARROGATE, TN -- The Lady Railsplitters' additions for the 2012 season continue to build. On Monday morning, coach Helio D'Anna announced two more signees out of the twelve players committed to continue their career at Lincoln Memorial University in the 2012 class.

Maddy Nagy will be joining the Lady Railsplitters next season and she arrives by way of Rockledge, Florida. Nagy, a 5'9" midfielder/forward combo, is a product of Viera High School where she was a captain from 2010-2012. She has notched 12 goals throughout 2011-2012 while winning the Viera High School Coaches Award in 2011. Nagy was a member of the Space Coast United club team that won the Florida State Cup Championship in 2010. Her athletic awards are numerous as she was selected to the ODP Team in 2009 and 2011 as well as being selected to the ODP State Pool in 2007 and 2008. She brings unparalleled knowledge of the game as she is a USSF referee.

Nagy also brings a strong academic background to LMU as she is a member of the National Honor Society. Due to the combination of her athletic and academic merits, she won the Coaches Leadership Award in 2010 and 2011. She plans on pursuing a health professions path during her stay at Lincoln Memorial. She is the daughter of Stacy and Tibor Nagy.

Regarding Nagy, head coach Helio D'Anna stated, "Maddy is a powerful striker who can shoot from long range with either foot. She is tough on the ball, carries it very well, and can score and playmake. She will be a stand out in the league."

Also from Viera High School, Olivia Thompson has committed to join the Lady Railsplitters for the 2012 season. Thompson, a 5'8" forward out of Melbourne, Florida, also played for the 2010 Florida State Cup Champion club team, Space Coast United. During her time with Space Coast United, Thompson was selected to the ODP Florida State Team in 2011. She has also been a frequent contributor to the soccer community in that area as she works with the club's Youth Development Program where her love of the game is passed on to the coming generations. Thompson holds an E coaching license in Florida and works as a trainer for her club program.

Thompson will pursue a path in the health profession during her tenure at Lincoln Memorial University. She is the daughter of Sandi and James Thompson.

Regarding Thompson, coach D'Anna said, "Liv is a very creative and smart player. She can make those around her better. She has flair and smarts and is a gamer. She gets the job done."

"Mady and Olivia are tactically sound players determined to never deter from working harder or learning new aspects of the game," commented Viera High School head soccer coach Steve Richards. "They are players that will make an immediated impact on any team, leading to greater success on the field as well as in the classroom. With their winning attitude and their high standard of dedication to the game, it will produce even greater victories for Lincoln Memorial as they did for Viera High. They will be truly missed by me and the team."

The Lincoln Memorial University women's soccer program is excited to welcome these new additions as the anticipation for the 2012 season is mounting and it looks to be filled with high expectations. Stay tuned for information in the coming weeks regarding the continued additions to the LMU men's and women's soccer programs.
