Hudson senior Morgan Karras isn’t letting a season-ending knee injury keep her from playing collegiate soccer next year.
Viterbo University women’s soccer head coach Scott Pirnstill announced last week that Karras has signed a letter of intent to play for the V-Hawks in 2011.
A midfielder, Karras is missing her senior season of soccer after suffering a knee injury in January while playing for the Raider basketball team. Although she is unable to play soccer this spring, she was honored by her team by being named a team captain. Prior to this year, she was named second team All-Big Rivers Conference as a junior and earned the team’s most improved award as a freshman.
“Morgan is a great person and teammate,” Pirnstill said. “She is very dedicated to her rehabilitation, and she should be ready to play this season. She has fantastic mental toughness and I am excited to see what she can do on the field once she is back.”
Karras said she was attracted to Viterbo after hearing about the school’s nursing program.
“I picked Viterbo because I have heard a lot of good things about the nursing program and the positive environment,” she said about the La Crosse university. “I am very interested in the nursing field and know that Viterbo is an excellent place to pursue that career. Playing soccer at Viterbo is a definite bonus as well; I just can’t see myself giving up the game yet. I am very thankful to get this opportunity to play the game that I love for the next four years and really look forward to being a part of solid, upbeat program.”
Karras will join the V-Hawks after being a three-sport standout at Hudson High School. She lettered in tennis, basketball and soccer.
