WAYNESVILLE, Mo. -- Kaitlyn Winking, a senior at Waynesville High School (Mo.) is joining the Lady Scots for the 2013-14 season. By accepting the enrollment offer, Winking has expressed her intent to become a full-time student and play for the women's soccer team under head coach Mark Duble in the fall of 2013.
Winking is currently a senior on the Waynesville Girls' varsity soccer team. Over the past three seasons, Winking has been recognized as an All-State Honorable Mention, All-District Defender of the Year, All-Conference Defender of the Year, named to the All-Region First Team and Academic Team. She has also helped her team win the district championship in Missouri Girls Class 3, District 10.
In her current spring season as a senior, Winking and her team have yet to allow a goal against their Ozark Conference competition during regulation play. Kaitlyn has also played club soccer for the Springfield Demize Soccer Club for several years.
As a student at Waynesville, Winking is a member of Student Government and the National Honor Society. She will be graduating from Waynesville in the spring of 2013 as a valedictorian of her senior class.
Winking is planning on majoring in elementary education. When asked what most excites her about attending Covenant, Winking said, "When I came to visit Covenant I thought the girls on the soccer team were awesome; and just the whole campus environment was amazing. I saw how much fun the girls on the team had playing soccer and spending time with each other and I really want to be a part of that."
Duble believes that "Winking will allow us to attack well out of the back. She is a tremendous attacking back. Her pace of play will elevate our ability to transition quickly and directly from the back line."
Duble, along with the rest of the Covenant women's soccer coaching staff and team, are pleased to have Kaitlyn Winking join the Lady Scots for the 2013 season.
