“In our sport a true goal scorer is someone who can consistently score against any team at anytime. Caroline is a true goal scorer and without a doubt one of the top goal scorers in the history of modern collegiate soccer. To have a run like she had last season where she scored 17 goals in 16 games against 12 teams that were ranked in the top 25 is an extraordinary accomplishment. We are very proud of her will and look forward to watching her at the next level do what she does best. … score goals.”
