Former UVA player Montana Sutton joins Saint Louis University women’s soccer staff
Saint Louis University women’s soccer head coach Katie Shields has announced that former University of Virginia midfielder Montana Sutton has joined the Billiken staff as a graduate assistant. Sutton is pursuing a master’s degree in student personnel administration.
“We are thrilled to complete our 2020-21 staff with the addition of Montana Sutton as our graduate assistant,” Shields said. “Montana competed at the highest level of the college game as a student-athlete at UVA. She will be a great mentor for our women and a tremendous asset to our program.”
“From the moment I spoke with Katie Shields and (associate head coach) Chris Allen on the phone, I knew that the culture amongst both the coaches and the players was special at SLU,” Sutton said. “I am incredibly excited to join this culture and serve as the graduate assistant for the women’s soccer program. I am very much looking forward to working closely with Katie, Chris, (assistant coach) Bry McCarthy, (volunteer assistant) Olivia Silverman, and the team. I am thrilled to join a very strong program where we can continue to grow our players, both athletically and academically.”
Sutton played in 83 games at Virginia, and her 37 starts included a first-11 assignment in all 22 Cavalier contests in her senior season. She finished her career with seven goals and seven assists and recorded the team’s second-highest assist total (five) as a senior. Sutton was an Atlantic Coast Conference All-Academic honoree and a UVA team captain in her senior campaign, and she was recognized on the ACC Academic Honor Roll as a freshman.
Sutton helped Virginia enjoy considerable success during her time in Charlottesville. The Cavaliers reached the quarterfinals once and the round of 16 three times in NCAA Championship play, won the 2015 ACC regular-season title, and posted records of 63-17-10 overall and 27-8-5 in conference action.
After earning a bachelor’s degree in American studies with a concentration in social media, Sutton served as assistant manager/social media specialist at her family’s restaurant in Far Hills, New Jersey, before arriving at SLU.
A native of Bedminster, New Jersey, Sutton made the All-Area first team twice and collected 80 goals and 40 assists at Bernards High School. She was a member of the Mountaineers’ 2013 state runner-up squad and was a team captain in her junior and senior seasons. Sutton played for the PDA (Players Development Academy) Clash, an ECNL club team, from U-11 to U-18.
