Women's Soccer Inks In-State Product Christi Padget
Feb. 10, 2012
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - University of Memphis women's soccer head coach Brooks Monaghan announced Friday that Franklin, Tenn., native Christi Padget has signed her National Letter of Intent to join the Lady Tigers. Padget is the seventh announced signee of the 2012-13 class.
"Christi is a very versatile player and we feel like she can play a number of positions for us," Monaghan said. "We think she could play outside forward or outside back for us. We believe she has the tools to excel in both positions. She is very athletic and as an outside back, she can get involved in the attack. She's got a fearless mentality and we think she can bring some physicality we've been lacking a bit. Christi has a lot of potential and we expect her to have a great career."
Helping Ravenwood High School to two state titles and an appearance in the state final last year, Padget has earned All-State, All-District and All-Region honors throughout her prep career. Padget set the regional records for points while playing at Ravenwood. Padget has played club soccer for the Strikers and Lady Lobos. She currently plays for the Brentwood Premier club team under the direction of Sandy Polluck and Brendy Gagliano.
Christi is the daughter of Craig and Lilia Padget. She plans to major in sports sciences to become a physical therapist.
