Cavaliers Add Katie Tracy to Roster
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.-- Virginia women's basketball head coach Debbie Ryan announced today that Katie Tracy (Richmond, Va./James River) will be added to the roster. Tracy, who started all 21 games for the Virginia women's soccer team this past Fall, will bolster Ryan's roster that has been hit hard with injuries. The Cavaliers began the season without guards Tiffany Bower and Monick Foote who are out for the year with injuries.
The 5-5 freshman was a three-time Dominion District Player of the Year and a two-time Central Region Player of the Year in basketball as well as the Virginia High School League State Player of the Year. Tracy led James River High School to the the state finals last season and averaged 14.0 points for her prep career. She was also the Richmond Times Dispatch Player of the Year as a junior and a senior and a three-time All-State selection in basketball.
"Katy is going to add a perimeter player to our line-up which we desperately need," said Ryan. "She is an intelligent player and will be a very big contributor by the end of the year." Ryan plans to use Tracy off of the bench at the point guard position.
As a midfielder for head coach April Heinrichs and the UVa soccer team, Tracy was the team's fourth leading scorer with four goals and four assists. The soccer team posted a 14-5-2 record and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. During her prep soccer career, she was a NSCAA and Parade All-American.
The basketball Cavaliers (7-1) return to action on Dec. 28 at California and Dec. 30 at Santa Clara.
