Head Coach Tom Stone on Caity Heap
"One of the most exciting players to come out of Texas in quite a while. Kenny Medina and the Sting SoccerClub has done a wonderful job developing Caity's game over the last few years. It is quite rare to find a freshman with such terrific game savvy on the ball and be this good in front of the goal. Caity has led her Sting '95 team to back to back USYSA National Championships and one ECNL National Championship so her standard for winning is very high and she will bring terrific mentality to our squad. Caity is a true competitor, does not like to lose, and will certainly be a player that our fans will take to right away."
