The Cyclone women’s soccer team continues to add more firepower to its arsenal by signing three more recruits for the fall season.
Erin Stapleton is a defender/midfielder from Marist High School, who also competes with club team Inter FC. She will see time in the backline for the Cyclones while bringing depth to the squad. Stapleton’s good attitude and work ethic will be an asset to the program. Her sister, Meghan, also played for the Cyclones in the 2016 and 2017 seasons. “Erin is a very solid, hard-working player who will look to earn time in the back for us. She has a great attitude and works hard,” said head Coach Al Palar.
Kaci Jasik comes from Shepard High School and also competes with the Chicago Fire Juniors. She usually plays defense but has seen time at midfield throughout her senior year. She will be competing for a starting position as a Cyclone this fall. “I’ve watched Kaci during her high school season this year and was most impressed with her ability to find the ball and be the first to it,” Palar said. “She will have a good career as a Cyclone.”
Veronika Stafira hails from Stagg High School and also plays for the Windy City Pride club. She will make the Cyclones that much more dangerous. This right-footed forward is fast and talented and has had successful high school and club careers. She is projected to start as a forward next year and be a significant goal scorer as well as goal creator. “I am very excited that Veronika chose to continue her education and athletic career at Moraine Valley. She is coming from a very good girls’ soccer program at Stagg High School. Her natural abilities as a soccer player make her an exciting talent to watch, and I am excited for the opportunity to coach her,” Palar said.
