UMAG, Croatia (March 3, 2015) - ETSU Women's Soccer's Sarah Zadrazil (St. Gilgen, Austria) and Simona Koren (Graz, Austria) have rejoined the Austria Women's National Team as the squad prepares for next month's opening match of the 2015 Istria Women's Cup.

During the upcoming Istria Cup, Austria will take on Slovakia, Hungary, and Ireland.

Last month, Zadrazil and Koren helped Austria earn a draw against global power Spain in a friendly in Murcia, Spain.

During ETSU's 2014 campaign, Koren and Zadrazil helped lead the Buccaneers to a program-record 15 wins while helping to pace an offensive attack that led NCAA Division I in scoring, averaging nearly 3.50 goals per contest.

Zadrazil, the NCAA DI active career leader for assists per game (0.77), finished last season with a nation-best 20 assists to go along with eight goals en route to earning All-SoCon First Team honors and a spot on the NSCAA All-Southeast Region Second Team.

Meanwhile, Koren ranked fourth in the Southern Conference with 12 goals, and also dished out five assists. She was named SoCon Women's Soccer Player of the Week in two of the season's first three weeks.

Both players are accustomed to playing on a global stage, as Zadrazil has earned more than eight caps for the Austria National Team, while Koren earned her first cap with the women's senior team last fall. Both Zadrazil and Koren have competed on Austria's U19 and U17 teams.
