Twohig on choosing the College of Charleston: "I felt that the College of Charleston was the best fit for me not only because of the great soccer program but also because of the high academic standards. I also wanted to be close to my family and the beach! I am very excited to be a Cougar and look forward to having a great future on the field and in the classroom."

Club Coach Jason Birchwood on Twohig: "The College of Charleston is getting a player who is extremely dedicated to the game of soccer. She brings the right attitude to the training pitch on a daily basis and works extremely hard at improving her skill. The one thing that impressed me most about Kate is her confidence. She is not afraid of a challenge and I think this is the quality that would help her achieve success at the next level. Also, she makes the other players around her look better. She enjoys winning and would do almost anything to help her team achieve that goal. I'm looking forward to seeing her on the field playing at the next level!"
