Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team adds to defensive unit with the first signee of the Kolarova era.
Meghan Dees joins the new era of Austin Peay women’s soccer under first-year head coach Naomi Kolarova. Dees, a talented defender, hails from Winter Haven, Florida, and joins the Governors’ squad from Eastern Florida State College, where she played under Jeff Carr.
At Eastern Florida State, Dees was a standout on and off the field, boasting a 3.8 grade point average, and was recognized for her academic prowess as a NJCAA Second Team All-Academic selection.
Dees was prepped at Lake Region High School, where she was a star on the pitch and on the track, winning a District title in the 800 meter run. She is the daughter of Jeff and Anita Dees, who played softball collegiately at Louisiana-Monroe, and has one sister Morgan, 22. Dees plans to major in Business and Marketing at Austin Peay, and hopes to continue her soccer career after graduation, and one day be a business owner.
“Meghan is a quick, technical, and athletic defender who loves to get forward supporting the offense from a wide position,” said Kolarova. “She has significantly contributed to her JUCO team success the past 2 years and is always a presence on the field. She makes good decisions defensively, is active offensively, communicates well, and plays a style we are after with our wide defenders next season. Coming in with a few seasons under her belt also adds some experience and depth to our backline which we need for the fall season. We’re excited she will be a Gov and look forward to her getting to Clarksville!”
