@MemphisWSoccer Adds Troy Transfer Necee Jennings
May 27, 2014
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Memphis women’s soccer head coach Brooks Monaghan announced Tuesday the addition of Necee Jennings, a transfer from Troy University, to the 2014 roster.
“We are extremely excited to add a player like Necee to our roster this close to the season,” Monaghan said. “Necee is a very versatile player that we can play about anywhere. Necee played midfield at Troy and showed the ability to score goals. Coming in, we will probably play her at outside forward or outside back. She has obviously shown she can get it done in the midfield. To be able to add a player that has one year of college experience under her belt is a huge addition. Necee still has room to grow, but that first year of experience goes a long way. We have very high expectations for her coming and we expect her to compete for valuable minutes from the get go.”
Jennings was named to the NSCAA All-South Region third team after leading the Troy squad with 14 points last season. Jennings scored seven goals, four game-winners, on her way to becoming the first Troy women’s soccer player to earn All-SBC (Sun Belt Conference) first team honors.
A native of Powder Springs, Georgia, Jennings played prep soccer at Hillgrove High School. She helped the Hawks to a combined 41-12-2 record in three seasons, including two trips to the state playoffs with 20 goals and 22 assists. Neece played club for Ben Parks and Southern Soccer Academy which won the 2012 State Cup.
Necee is the daughter of Karen and Sidney Jennings.
