WASHINGTON, D.C. - The WUSA's Washington Freedom has added two former Maryland Terrapins to its preseason roster as it prepares for its inaugural campaign. Midfielder Robin McCullough, who played at Maryland from 1995-98 is joined by goalie Riki-Ann Serrins, who just finished her career this past fall in College Park.
The duo joins former Terp stars Keri Sarver (1995-98), a Freedom draft pick and Jackie Mynarski (1996-99), who was taken by the Freedom in the 2001 supplemental draft.
McCullough, Maryland's all-time leader in games played with 97, was a four-year starter for the Terps. She finished with 66 points to rank third all-time at Maryland. She is also ranked in the top 10 in games started (tied for 1st with 95), goals (6th with 21), assists (3rd with 24) and shots (3rd with 172). She was an All-ACC second team selection in 1996 and 1997 and also an All-Mid-Atlantic region second team pick in those same seasons. McCullough has played for the Maryland Pride for the last two seasons.
Serrins had a standout senior season for the Terps and wrote her name into the Maryland record book when it comes to goalkeeping. She finished her Maryland career ranked as the all-time leader in career shutouts with 13.5 and in the top three all-time in goals against average, saves and games played. She was named a second team All-ACC performer in 1998 and again as a senior in 2000. She played in 58 games as a keeper, starting 44, including all 19 in 2000, posting a 1.39 goals against average during her four years. She finished No. 3 all-time in saves with 219.
McCullough and Serrins are joined by five other players as preseason additions to the Freedom's roster. Included in that group is Nancy Rohrman, the wife of Maryland men's assistant soccer coach Jeff Rohrman, who live in Crofton.
The other four players are midfielder Cindy Harkes, who lives in Fairfax, midfielder Gayle Smith lives in Falls Church defender Tanya Vogel, who is the head coach of the George Washington University women's soccer team, defender Megan McAlpin from Fresno, California also joined the roster.
