Titan women's soccer received a boost for the 2010 season with the signing of 12 new recruits to the team.

Lane has added Katie Bidwell, a 2009 5A First Team All-State forward from Thurston High School in Springfield. Bidwell was also a four-time Midwestern First Team All-League selection.

"Katie brings a great ability and desire to score," Ellis said. "She is both technical and extremely athletic."

The Titans have also added Bronte Jorgensen, a two-time 6A Southwest First Team All-League selection from Sheldon High School in Eugene. Jorgensen was also selected to the 2007 6A Southwest Second Team.

"Bronte is an extremely fast athletic forward who will give the ability to get in behind defenses," Ellis said.

The Lewis sisters, from Thurston High School, will also join the Titans. Jenna , a midfielder was selected to the Midwestern First Team All-League three times, and Erin, a 2006 Midwestern First Team All-League selection.

"We had Jenna ranked as the top midfielder in the Eugene area [and] we are delighted with her ability to link a team together," Ellis said. "Erin brings good size, soft hands, and a steady demeanor to goal keeping."

Also headlining the class is center defender Kiara McDonagh from Vancouver Arts School and Shelby Campbell a defender from North Eugene High School. Campbell was a two-time Midwestern First Team All-League selection.

"We are extremely happy with this group and feel the squad will be much improved over last year," Ellis said. "We are still tracking a few more players that could come in and contribute next fall. This class and other developments at Lane, including our brand new soccer facility, mark the beginning of a very exciting time for women's soccer at Lane."
