Furman University adds Charlotte Soccer Academy goalkeeper

Greenville, S.C. – Goalkeeper Abby Ross will join the Furman University women’s soccer program in the fall of 2021, head coach Andrew Burr announced.

A native of Rock Hill, S.C., and a senior at Northwestern High School, Ross is rated as a three-star prospect by Top Drawer Soccer. During the 2020-21 season, Ross has helped Charlotte Soccer Academy U-19 to first place in the Elite Club National League’s Mid-Atlantic Conference standings with a 17-2-0 record. She played a key role in helping Charlotte Soccer Academy’s U-15 and U16/17 squads reach the national playoffs and claim top 25 rankings during her time with the club.

“Abby is a high-level, technical player who reads the game very well,” said Burr. “She is a valuable addition to our talented goalkeeping group and I am excited to see her develop as a student-athlete here at Furman.”

Ross joins Helen Gutierrez of Statesboro, Ga., and Madison Luckett of Asheville, N.C., in comprising Furman’s 2021 class. Gutierrez and Luckett signed with the Paladins during the November period.

Furman posted a 14-6-1 overall record and claimed the Southern Conference regular season title with a 7-1-1 league mark in 2019. The Paladins are set to return seven starters for their 2021 spring season, including All-SoCon selections Jasmine Greene, Isabella Gutierrez and Kyndal Anderson.

The Paladins open the season on Tuesday, February 9, hosting the Anderson Trojans in an exhibition match at Stone Stadium.
