DETROIT, Mich. -- With the inaugural class gone to graduation, head coach Tony Williams has turned his attention to recruiting a new era of talent for Marygrove College Women's Soccer. The new era, led by a fine 2012 recruiting class a year prior, will be ushered in by Lakeland High School's Rachael Gilmore.

The 5'11" goalkeeper from White Lake is the first written commitment for the program's highly-anticipated 2013 class.

A three-year varsity performer, Gilmore will head to Marygrove with a bevy of experience at the high school and club levels. At Lakeland, the Eagle keeper helped lift the team to a district semifinal appearance in 2012 after she turned away several Walled Lake Northern shots to propel the team to victory in a shootout thriller.

The performance, flanked by a successful year on-and-off the field, helped Gilmore be named Eagle of the Year – an award that exemplifies leadership and other top performing qualities within the Lakeland Women's Soccer program. Gilmore also won Lakeland's Ultimate Defender award as a freshman.

In 2011, Gilmore was a member of Vardar – a well-known club program throughout the region. A year later (2012), the gritty keeper landed a spot with Michigan Jags – another top club program – after a successful junior campaign at Lakeland.

Coach Williams on Gilmore: We are very thrilled to add Rachael to our program. Her work ethic on-and-off the field will help her compete for a starting job in net early in her career. She comes from a solid program at Lakeland and will thrive under our goalie-specific coaching at Marygrove. I look forward to coaching Rachael next season and wish her the best of luck this season at Lakeland!
