LA Tech Soccer Adds Transfer Goalkeeper
May 30, 2017
RUSTON -- With the graduation of their three-year starter in net, the Louisiana Tech women's soccer team added some depth between the posts on Tuesday with the addition of Mississippi State transfer Courtney Tompkins.
Tompkins, a native of Palm City, Florida, has spent the past two seasons playing in the Southeastern Conference as a member of the Bulldogs.
"After a very good spring season, we sat down and evaluated the team's strengths and weaknesses and found that one area we needed to strengthen was our goalkeeper position," head coach Kevin Sherry said. "After the graduation of Kylee Seto, it is essential we have a strong goalkeeper to replace her. Courtney is a top keeper and I am confident she will have a huge influence on the success of our program."
Tompkins played and started in one game her sophomore season, earning a clean sheet win against Southern Miss after saving six shots.
As a freshman, she earned three starts in net, all coming in SEC action. She totaled 10 saves in the three matches against Kentucky, Florida and LSU, going the distance in each game while picking up a shutout victory against the Wildcats.
Tompkins was a four-star goalkeeper and one of the top players in the state of Florida as a dual-sport athlete at American Heritage. She was in net for two state championship squads, helping the school to the third-most state titles in Florida history.
She helped lead American Heritage to four straight district championships and a pair of regional crowns. She set a high school record with no goals allowed in two state tournaments and was the 2014 Team MVP and state championship player of the game.
In her senior year, she allowed just two goals through 520 minutes in route to a 14-3-3 record and a runner-up finish in Class 2A. As a junior, she led her team to a 19-2 mark while surrendering only five goals in 1,440 minutes.
Tompkins was tabbed all-county goalkeeper all four high school seasons and was a two-time State Cup Champion for the Magic Jack club team that also won multiple national championships.
LA Tech opens the fall season on Aug. 18 at McNeese State.
