Wildcats Waiting in the Wings, Part I: Eclipse Select's Hannah Davison

Eclipse Select Soccer Club has always had its share of ties with Northwestern’s program, but the 2015 campaign will be an interesting one to watch for a variety of reasons.

The Big Ten squad has been in a transition mode with the arrivals of former Wisconsin-Milwaukee head coach Michael Moynihan and assistant David Nikolic after the Wildcats’ 2011 season. When Eclipse Select’s U-17 Elite Clubs National League trio of Hannah Davison, Aspyn Repp and Kayla Sharples steps into the program, that NU team will be completely branded by this coaching tandem.

“They have definitely changed a lot with the program,” said the Geneva, Ill., native, who was the first of this Eclipse Select trio to commit to Northwestern early in 2013. “It will be a unique situation when we join the 2015 class, because when we come in, all four years – freshman, sophomore, junior and senior – will be recruited by Michael and David. Hopefully we can be at the top of our division when we all get there.”

The fact that all three current teammates could play a significant role together post-Eclipse Select makes this even more unique.

“We’re all very excited to be able to enter something like this together, because it can be nerve-wracking to make a transition like that,” Davison said. “Now, I have two of my friends there as we head to college, and we have that team chemistry, foundation and background that we will benefit from.”
