PORTALES — The Dozier era in the Eastern New Mexico University women’s soccer program is not over just yet.

Megan Dozier has led the Zias on the field in the program’s first four seasons and is the top scorer in Zias history. Now her younger sister, Hannah, will try to carry the torch.

Also, Zias coach Travis McCorkle has added Megan Corn, a forward-midfielder from Roswell High.

The younger Dozier had a successful career at Midland (Texas) High, as did her sister before her. McCorkle thinks her speed should help boost ENMU’s offensive output.

“Hannah has great speed and we look forward to her serving and finishing crosses,” McCorkle said. “With the graduation of Kara Henderson and Megan Dozier, we’re confident Hannah will contribute to our ‘new’ offensive outlook next year.”

Meantime, Corn was a first-team all-district selection at forward as a junior and senior at Roswell High. She earned second-team honors on defense as a sophomore, and was an honorable mention Class 4A all-state choice on defense in 2004.

She also participated in track and cross country in high school.”

“Megan has a background in track, which is an obvious plus considering the fitness required in both sports,” ENMU women’s coach Travis McCorkle said. “She will help us as either a forward or midfielder, and is very excited about joining our program.”
