FROM THE COACH
“We’re excited to add a high-level player at this stage of the recruitment process,” Cullen said. “We graduate three players who could be considered defensive players for our program so it was crucial we added at least another defensive-style player.
“Amber has so many qualities we look for in our players: excellent distribution out of the back, comfort level on the ball, playing soccer at a high level in the club ranks and a great understanding of positioning and covering angles at the back. We are very excited to add Amber to our squad and know she will be a wonderful addition.”
