Soccer Adds Transfer Kaelyn Korte

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. – Central Michigan soccer head coach Peter McGahey has announced the addition of Creighton transfer Kaelyn Korte to the roster.

"I am happy to have a player of KK's caliber join our program and I look forward to having her as part of the Chippewa soccer family," said McGahey. "I have worked with her in the past with the Olympic Development Program, so I am familiar with her abilities. She will be a key addition to next year's team."

A sophomore midfielder, Korte played in 18 games, including 14 starts, for the Bluejays in 2012 in her freshman campaign. She scored one goal, a game winner, and had two assists, earning All-Missouri Valley Conference Honorable Mention and Freshman Team honors.

Korte, a native of Prior Lake, Minn., graduated from Shattuck-St. Mary’s Academy in 2012, receiving first team all-conference recognition following her senior season. She won a Midwest Regional League Championship with her U18 club team and captured a US Club National Championship with the San Diego Surf Soccer Club in 2007.

McGahey will make his CMU coaching debut on Sunday, Aug. 18 when the Chippewas host Michigan State in a 5 p.m. exhibition contest. A week later, Central Michigan will open the regular season at home versus Detroit.
