(UCFKnights.com) – Orlando Pride announced that the club has signed UCF alumna Carrie Lawrence and Zandy Soree to short-term contracts to join the team for the duration of the NWSL Fall Series.

While at UCF, she was a three-year letterwinner from 2016-18, making 49 appearances, scoring four goals and adding 11 assists. In her final campaign with the Knights, Lawrence was named to the United Soccer Coaches Association Third Team All-Region and American Athletic Conference Second Team All-Conference.

On the international stage, Soree has appeared for the Belgian U-17, U-19 and senior national teams, with three caps for the senior side, the first of which came in 2019.

The two UCF alumna will join former teammate Konya Plummer after the Jamaican international was drafted No. 10 overall by the Pride at the 2020 NWSL College Draft.
