Duke women’s soccer signs Michigan State transfer Bria Schrotenboer
DURHAM – Head coach Robbie Church and the Duke women’s soccer team have announced the addition of Bria Schrotenboer, who joins the Blue Devils as a transfer after competing for two years at Michigan State.
A native of Holland, Mich., Schrotenboer appeared in 19 matches over two seasons with the Spartans. As a freshman in 2019, she made 16 starts on the backline, helping Michigan State’s defensive unit collect four shutout wins. She netted her first collegiate goal against No. 21 Michigan and capped off her rookie campaign with All-Big Ten Freshman Team honors. Schrotenboer played three matches in the spring of 2021 as a sophomore.
“We’re very excited to have Bria join our women’s soccer family,” Church said. “She will be a great fit at Duke University, both academically and athletically. We feel like she will fit in very well with our team and our team culture. The experience she has at the collegiate level will be a plus for her, so we look for great things from her during her career here at Duke.”
Schrotenboer has also gained experience playing within the U.S. Soccer system. She was selected to compete for the U-17 and U-19 national teams, and was called up to the U-20 team for the 2019 Nike International Friendlies.
She joins a Duke backline that includes recent graduate Caitlin Cosme – who announced she will return for an additional season granted by the NCAA due to the COVID-19 pandemic – as well as All-ACC performer Delaney Graham, rising junior Natalie Maurer and rising sophomores Nicky Chico, Katie Groff and Emily Royson.
