Anderson County resident Abby Prater has been named captain of the Transylvania University women's soccer team for the 2014 season.

A senior, Prater was selected for the honor by her teammates and coaches.

“Being captain is special to me mostly because in past years, the coaches were the only people that had input during the selection process but this year, the team was included and personally nominated me,” Prater said in an e-mail. “I feel honored that my teammates trust me enough to lead and I promise to make them proud for the upcoming season.”

Prater signed with the University of Indianapolis out of high school but transferred to Transylvania after one semester. She has been a member of the Transylvania team since.

Prater has primarily played right wing at Transy but hopes to play some midfield in the coming season.
