Kelci Hegg

Freshman - Forward 5-3

Charlotte, N.C.
Charlotte Catholic

After an all-state career as a defender, Hegg will join the midfield corps at Vanderbilt this season. A strong defender who led her Charlotte Catholic team to a state championship that allowed only four goals in 26 games, also showed offensive skill by scoring 15 goals from her defensive position. That strong ability at both ends of the field will be an asset to the Commodores this year.
