June 4, 2010
GREENVILLE, N.C. - After claiming its first Conference USA regular season and tournament titles, the East Carolina softball team announced Friday the addition of three more freshmen to next year's roster. Chelsea-Lee Kaluhiokalani-Glackin, Jasmine Robbins and Abby Wynne have signed national letters-of-intent to attend East Carolina and play with the Pirates beginning in the fall of 2010. The trio joins Alexandra Fieldhouse, Jill Jelnick, Rebecca Lee, Jordan Lewis, Mahrisch Medina and Kristi Oshiro, who all signed with East Carolina in November.

Kaluhiokalani-Glackin on Choosing East Carolina: "I chose ECU because I felt that it was going to be the best fit for me. I enjoyed the campus, the team and the facilities the athletes use to succeed. I'm very excited that the school has the major of my choice [exercise physiology]. From what I have heard, it is a great program."
Associate head coach Natalie Kozlowski on Kaluhiokalani-Glackin: "Chelsea will bring much needed athleticism to the outfield. She is a smooth fielder and her speed will be valuable not only in the grass, but offensively as well. We look forward to having Chelsea on our Pirate squad."

Robbins on Choosing East Carolina: "The reason I chose ECU was because I really like the personalities of Coach Kee and Coach Kozlowski. They are interested in the total individual, not just the softball player."
Kozlowski on Robbins: "Each time we watched Jazz compete, the more excited we got about her. She is a true outfielder who packs both speed and power into her small frame. Her future in a Pirate uniform is very bright."
Abby Wynne, Catcher/Utility, 5-5, Catcher/Outfield, 5-8, Bethel, N.C. (North Pitt)
Wynne on Choosing East Carolina: "I chose East Carolina because it felt more like home than any other school I visited. Not only is ECU great athletically, but it is great academically, which made my choice so much easier. Everything just felt like it was in place when I visited. After I left, I knew I was going to ECU next year. I couldn't have found another school with a better all-around fit for me. I felt comfortable with all of the players and the coaches because they were so welcoming. I couldn't ask for a better team to be playing on, or better coaches to instruct me."
Head coach Tracey Kee on Wynne: "Abby's athleticism will allow us to look at her in multiple positions. She's a great competitor and a true Pirate, as both parents are ECU alumni."
