Speed on the back line of a soccer team is very important to a defensive scheme, so when speed meets exceptional work ethic in a player, confidence grows.
For the Lady Arrows, Senior Caitlyn Dungee was that player, and she looks to continue that growth next fall.
On April 6, 2018, Caitlyn Dungee signed a letter of intent to play soccer for Jones County Junior College in Ellisville, Miss.
“When I visited, I loved how welcoming the other girls were, and it made me feel like I was already part of the team,” Dungee said. “I also feel that Coach (Deasley) is going to push me at that next level.
Selected as a member of the 2018 MACs North State All-Star team, Caitlyn is no stranger to earning her spot on a team. She won the Lady Arrows 2017 MVP award as well as the 2016 Best Defensive Player award. Her development was noticed during her sophomore year when she earned the Most Improved Player Award.
“Caitlyn is a fantastic player for us, and she has been for quite some time,”Lady Arrows Head Coach Tommy Bobo said. “She’s got a lot of speed, she’s a good decision maker, but probably the most important thing about her is her work ethic; it’s fantastic. It’ll translate very well into the college player.
Bobo added that Dungee should transition well going from high school soccer to collegiate soccer, and that is something the Lady Arrow program fosters.
“We try to run our program a lot like a college program,” Bobo said. “We’re all business. We try to win ball games. We work very hard, so I know she’s prepared to step into that kind of environment in college.”
Caitlyn is a member of National Honor Society and was selected as a 2017 Homecoming Court Princess her senior year.
Caitlyn Dungee is the daughter of Diedra Dungee and Willie Lott, Jr.
