Former Oklahoma Gatorade Player of the Year Caitlin Mooney
has enrolled at the University of Oklahoma after spending the fall semester at Maryland, which
she helped reach the round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament.
"It was a soccer and family decision to transfer," Mooney told
The Oklahoman last month. "I just decided to come back and play
where friends and family can watch and be part of everything."
Mooney will be reunited with club teammate Dria Hampton
2009, Mooney appeared in 21 of Maryland's 22 games, with three starts, and was tied for fourth on the squad with four goals. She scored against Monmouth in first round of NCAA Tournament.
"We are very excited to add a player of Caitlin's caliber to our program," said Sooner boss Nicole Nelson
. "Caitlin is a perfect complement to a
very good group of attacking players we currently have at OU. She has demonstrated that she has the ability to change games and she has familiarity with our style. Since she grew up in
the state of Oklahoma, I know she will represent the Sooner Nation with a tremendous amount of pride."
