"We are so excited to have Julia. She will add much needed depth to our pitching rotation. We look forward to great things from her," said Austin-Robinson.
The Colonels are also adding three other Louisville players - middle infielder Lindsey Willett of Presentation, outfielder Holly Bradford of Ballard and outfielder Shannon Leahy of Eastern. The only out of state addition will be Sarah Frazier, a shortstop from Big Stone Gap, Virginia.
"We are so excited about all the new freshmen. They are a very talented class that will give us much needed depth," Austin-Robinson said.
Centre finished the regular season 16-16 and earned a spot in the SCAC Tournament. The Colonels only lose two seniors, Jessica Chilsey and Lindy Pritchard, off this year's team.
Louisville's Pat McMahon turned down chances to play for Division I schools Maryland, Tulsa and Rollins to commit to the Centre men's soccer team.
"He will be a massive person in our midfield," Centre coach Jeb Burch said.
Burch also is adding South Carolina's Olympic Development goalkeeper Cris Creger to help offset the loss of All-American Jacob Sither.
Burch also says Dayton's Matt Kowaleski will be the team's fastest player next year. Burch also hopes he added scoring with the commitments of Lexington's Rus Whalen and Louisville's Nick Judah. The Colonels are also adding Kentucky transfer Brian Kretz.
Burch's overall class includes 11 Olympic Development state players, six regional pool players, 10 state champions and four Tampa Bay Sunbowl finalists.
"We have balanced contributions from each class, the core of our team in committed to improving on last year's record and our incoming class is considered by many to be the best Centre has brought to campus," Burch said.
Other members of Burch's recruiting class are: Atif Chowdhurdy, Louisville; Sean Chandler, Louisville; Kevin Hvelda, Owensboro; John Templeton, Chattanooga; Matt Hoskins, Lexington; Robbie Crump, Louisville; Brandon Gish, Owensboro; and Matt Corbitt, Louisville.
