STILLWATER, Okla. -- Oklahoma State has added Junior College All-American Christina Jean-Charles to its soccer program, it was announced today by Cowgirl head coach Colin Carmichael.
Jean-Charles comes to Stillwater after a standout career at Monroe College in New York City. A 5-foot-7 defender, Jean-Charles started 33 games in her career with the Mustangs and was a NJCAA First-Team All-American in 2014.
"We are very excited to have Christina join our program," Carmichael said. "She is a gifted student-athlete who has achieved tremendous success at the junior college level. She can play either center back or center midfield, which are two positions we felt needed to be strengthened after last fall. We expect Christina to compete for a spot immediately and look forward to having her train and play with us in our upcoming spring season."
A New York City native who attended Clarkstown South High School, Jean-Charles helped lead Monroe College to the 2014 NJCAA Division I national championship last November. The Mustangs finished the season 18-1-1, recording 11 shutouts and a 0.57 goals-against average along the way.
Monroe advanced to the NJCAA Division I Women's Soccer Championships in each of Jean-Charles' two seasons and was 32-3-1 during her career for head coach Jonathan Garbar's squad.
Jean-Charles also excelled in the classroom and was named a NJCAA Academic Student-Athlete Award winner in 2013-14.
