Former Glenwood soccer star Egolf transfers to UIS

Former Chatham Glenwood High School soccer standout Erin Egolf has transferred to the University of Illinois Springfield, an NCAA Division II program, following an award-winning season at Division I Illinois State University.

Egolf was voted to the Missouri Valley Conference All-Freshman women’s soccer team last fall. That couldn’t keep her at ISU. She transferred to and attended classes at UIS during the spring semester. Egolf said ISU “really didn’t work out.’’

“I loved the school and my teammates were great,” she said.

UIS coach Pete Kowall plans to utilize Egolf’s offensive talent.

“We were excited to have Erin transfer in midterm,” he said in a press release. “She will help us score goals and keep the ball in the attacking third.”

Egolf was featured in a June 2, 2010, article in The State Journal-Register.
