TCU head soccer coach Dan Abdalla announced the additions of Kim Castleberry and Brittany Slyman to the TCU women's soccer program recently.

"We're excited to add two such dynamic attacking personalities this spring. Both of these players give us some very unique options to a great group of returning attacking players. With the addition of Kim and Brittany we will be one of the most dangerous attacks in the country," said Abdalla.

Kim Castleberry comes to TCU from Texas A&M where she played in 25 games, including 10 starts this past fall. The McKinney native netted two goals during the 2009 season, while dishing out one assist. Prior to her stint in College Station, Castleberry, who was a two-time All-America honoree by both Parade and the NSCAA, was considered the #1 recruit in the nation for the class of 2009 by Top Drawer Soccer. She is currently a member of the U20 Women's National Team and helped lead her club team to the U17 US Youth Soccer National Championship in 2008 after earning runnerup honors in 2007.

"Kim was arguably the best striker in the 2009 class and gives us the immediate ability to stretch any backline in the country with her pace. As dangerous as she is, we're looking forward to seeing her grow even more and add more weapons to her game," said Abdalla.

Brittany Slyman will compete for the Horned Frogs next fall after capturing the Manchester United Premier Cup/Nike Cup Golden Boot award in 2005. The Frisco native brings a wealth of club experience with her to Fort Worth as she also helped lead the Dallas Texans to the 2008 U17 USYSA National Championship.

"Brittany is a slasher and loves to get the ball and run at players. Her ability to create off the dribble adds a whole different dimension to our attack," said Abdalla.
