Athens, GA - Former ACC All-Freshman honoree and North Carolina State University midfielder Kara Blosser has transferred to Georgia for the upcoming 2011 soccer season, head coach Steve Holeman announced Thursday.
Blosser – who played the previous two seasons at NC State – will enroll at UGA for the spring semester and will be eligible immediately because she transferred outside of the Atlantic Coast Conference. She will have two years of eligibility remaining.
As a sophomore in 2010, the Virginia native played in 18 games for the Wolfpack, scoring three goals and adding one assist for seven points. Perhaps her most notable statistic was her team-leading 64 shots (3.56 spg), which ranked ninth in the ACC. She was rated a top-100 upperclassman in women’s college soccer by topdrawersoccer.com.
In 2009, Blosser turned in a standout freshman campaign that amounted to league all-rookie honors. That season she led NC State with 20 points and nine goals, ranking as the highest outputs for a Wolfpack freshman in 20 years in their respective categories. She was also named to the ACC All-Academic team following the 2009 season.
Blosser steps onto a Georgia squad that finished 11-6-4 overall and 5-3-3 in Southeastern Conference play in 2010, spending the majority of the reason ranked in the top-25 and reaching as high as No. 17. Georgia returns nine players who started 10 or more games this past season.
