Sophomore stand-out defender Katherine Shields signed a National Letter of Intent to continue her academic and athletic career at Wesley College, located in Dover, Delaware. Shields will graduate from Cecil College in May with a General Studies degree and plans to study Nursing within Wesley's notorious program.
Wesley College is a NCAA Division III institution and competes in the Atlantic East Conference. Last season, the Wolverines finished their season with an overall record of 9-5-2 and 4-1-1 against conference opponents. The Wolverines' 2018 season came after a close 1-0 loss in the conference semi-finals and a 4-2 in the first round of the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC).
Shields was a dominant force on the defense and in the midfield for the Seahawks during the 2016 and 2018 seasons. As a sophomore season, she played and started in all nine contests, helping the Seahawks to their only victory of the season over CCBC Catonsville. Shields recorded her first goal of the season, and the Seahawks' lone penalty kick, in a loss to Montgomery College. Katie was also a member of the women's basketball team for one season.
