Cornerstone University welcomes Kate Wiegman to the Women's Soccer Program. Kate Wiegman from Wheaton, Ill. has signed a letter of intent to play soccer at Cornerstone beginning in the fall of 2011.
Kate attends Wheaton North High School and has played varsity soccer for the past 2 years and will begin her senior season in March. Kate was the team's leading scorer in 2010 and was voted Most Valuable Attacker by her teammates.
Kate is also an excellent student. She has made the Gold Honor Roll every semester in H.S. She is in the top 5% of her graduating class. She received the National Merit Scholarship Program Letter of Commendation fall of 2010. She was a 2011-2012 Illinois State Scholar and a member of Mu Alpha Theta since inducted in spring of 2009. She has been a member of the Spanish Honor Society since 2009 and a member of National Honor Society since inducted in spring of 2010. Kate is also active in her church and is a member of the Summit youth group at Glen Elyn Bible Church.
"I think Kate is a very solid player that can play multiple positions. She is a calm leader on the field and I think will have a great chance of coming in and playing a central role for us next season."
Why she chose Cornerstone
"When I first visited Cornerstone, I was very impressed with the sense of community on campus. The fact that the Bilingual Education program is considered one of the best in the state also made me consider CU. Later, when I came for a second visit and to practice with the team, I felt the same sense of community and that the team really knew what it meant to play for God and for each other. I am excited to be a part of this great group of women next fall!."
