Western Michigan Women's Soccer Adds Three to Spring Roster

Western Michigan has announced the addition of three recruits to the Broncos program prior to spring soccer beginning.

Western Michigan's women's soccer program and head coach Nate Norman announced the addition of sophomore Irene Young, freshman Stephanie Heber and freshman Charma Sedki.

Young has spent the last two seasons playing as a forward for the Louisvillle Cardinals, recording two goals and an assist, and joins the Broncos with two years of eligibility left.

It is fitting that the Troy, Mich. native returns to her home state received massive accolades before graduating from Troy High School and being awarded Michigan's 2012 Ms. Soccer, 2012 Parade High School All-American and was a member of the 2012 all-State Dream Team.

For club play, the forward was a back-to-back State Runner Up and competed in MRL Premier and National Leagues with the Michigan Football Club.

Heber comes to Kalamazoo from Seton Hall where she tended the goal for Pirates and after redshirting her freshman year, joins the Broncos with four years of eligibility. She was also a member of the Michigan Football Club and a winner of the 2013 Under-18 MSYSA State Cup.

The young goalkeeper also competed in MRL Premier and National league and helped her club team finish ranked 10th in the nation in 2012. The Rochester, Mich. native was also a standout player in high school, playing for Rochester High School and three-year varsity starter.

She also was named to the 2012 All-State Second Team and the 2013 All-State First Team while setting the Rochester High record for single season shutouts with 18 and the single season goals against average record in 2013 with a 0.44 average.

Sedki hails from Longueuil, Quebec and joins Western Michigan as a freshman. After a strong, accolade-filled four years in high school, the young midfielder will look to bring her high school skills to the next level. She was team captain of Ste-Julie Football Club from 2010-2014 and a member of the Team Lynx of Edourdo-Montpetit from 2012-2013.

The Canadian graduated from Jacques-Rousseau High School where she was named Athlete of the Year, a member of the All-Star Team "Equipe Etoile" and Rookie of the Year.

The Broncos are coming off one of their best seasons in program history after being crowned Mid-American Conference champions and successfully making the NCAA College Cup that saw them upset No. 2 Marquette by a scoreline of 1-0.
