Two more student-athletes to join UNCG womens soccer team
GREENSBORO, NC – UNC Greensboro women’s soccer head coach Eddie Radwanski announced the addition of two student-athletes to the squad who have already enrolled in the university.
Kathryn Voznik, a native of Jamestown, NC, enrolled in classes at UNCG in the fall and joined the team in January. She is a two-time all-state and a three-time all-conference performer at Ragsdale HS. She helped lead her squad to a 2005 North Carolina State Championship. As a two-year member of the Greensboro Twisters club, she was a part of the 2005 Region III Championship squad as well as the 2006 Region III Finalist team. In 2005, the team went on to capture the bronze medal at the National Championship. Voznik is also a four-time Scholastic Athlete Award winner.
“Kate joins us from a Twisters club where she was an instrumental part in the team’s success,” stated Radwanski. “It is good to have her jump in with the team now and get an early introduction to the college athletics experience. She is a smart, tough defensive player and we are glad to have her as a part of the team.”
Julia Demetrius joins the squad after transferring from the University of Miami and enrolling at UNCG this semester. Demetrius scored one goal and saw action in five games as a Hurricane. A product of Greensboro, she played for Northwest Guilford HS along with UNCG’s Leigh Riordon and earned all-conference, all-region and all-state honors. Demetrius was also a four-year member of the North Carolina ODP squad and a Winston-Salem Twins club teammate of the Spartans’ Lauren Lopez. The Twins captured the North Carolina State Cup Championship in 2004. Her Charlotte Soccer Club team took the North Carolina State Cup in 2005. Demetrius also served as a member of the Portugal National U-19 team in 2004 and 2005.
“Being a Greensboro native, Julia comes to us via the University of Miami to be close to home. As a former teammate of Lauren Lopez and Leigh Riordon, she has a familiarity with the team. I’ve known Julia since her youth soccer days and we are happy to have her join us and be a part of the team starting this spring.”
The Spartans finished the 2006 season with a 13-8-2 overall record and captured the Southern Conference regular season title as well as the SoCon Tournament crown after finishing conference play 9-0-1. Radwanski helped UNCG advance to the NCAA Women’s Soccer Tournament for the seventh time in the program’s history.
