NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Trevecca Nazarene University is excited to announce the addition of Chelsea Abney of Clarksville, Tenn., to the women's soccer program's 2011-2012 recruiting class. Abney comes to Trevecca after completing her prep career at Northwest High School, where she also ran cross country in addition to playing soccer.

"We're thrilled to be bringing Chelsea into our program this year," says Trojans' Head Coach Brett Armstrong. "She will be a great fit here at TNU both on and off the field."
The 5-foot three forward/midfielder earned her team's Offensive MVP award in 2010, which followed up her 2009 honor as Midfield MVP. In addition, Abney earned 2010 All-Tournament honors and received the Distinguished Athlete Award from the United States Marine Corps. Academically, Abney was a three-time winner of Academic Honors from the CMC Education Foundation.

"Chelsea has great speed and quickness," adds Coach Armstrong. "She has a chance to develop into a dangerous attacking player for us during her career at Trevecca."

Chelsea is the daughter of David and Mary Abney.
