Making History

Screaming Eagles soccer was established in the late 90’s as a NCAA recognized sport.  In 2006, CSE joined the Division III Association of Independents.  In 2007, alumna Chantelle Blair was the leading scorer for the Eagles along with teammate Diane Da Silva.

In the 2009 season, led by Head Coach Ahmet Kose and Assistant Angie Bartizal, the Eagles gained six new freshmen which contributed to the early success in their season.  Facing conference opponent, Wilson College, the Eagles soared to an 8-0 victory. Goals were scored by Diane Da Silva (‘11), Cassidy Crane (‘14), Melinda Levendusky (‘10), and Jasmine Bristol(’14).

These 40 saves were a career high and placed her second in the NCAA Statistical Leaders for goals saved per game. This would also become a new school record of saves high.
