Huntington University women’s soccer coach Ryan Burgher announced the addition of Norwell High School standout, Brittany Hartman, to this fall's recruiting class. Hartman is the third player of a very talented recruitment class that has committed to play for the Foresters for the 2009 season.
Hartman was a four-year starter for the Knight's program and was one of the team’s most dangerous players. In her senior season, Hartman scored nine goals and had 10 assists as a central midfielder and was named Honorable Mention All-Conference. As a junior, Hartman was named Second Team All-Conference.
In the classroom Hartman is an honor roll student. Hartman also participates in track at Norwell and is involved in her local youth group.
Hartman, who is planning on majoring in elementary education says, “Huntington has everything I have been looking for in a college! I love the Christian atmosphere and the soccer girls. I’m really excited to get to know the soccer girls better and to have a great soccer season!”
“Brittany is going to be a great addition to our team. Her speed is going to cause problems for defenders, and on top of that she has a great work ethic," said Coach Burgher. "That combination is going to make her a very dangerous player. At Huntington we aren’t looking for just good soccer players. We want the type of person that is going to help our program move forward off the field and there is no doubt that Brittany is that type of person. We are all very excited to have her join the family.”
Hartman is the daughter of Darin and Kamaran Hartman from Ossian, IN.
