St. John’s signs goalkeeper Gina Muzi on transfer from Portland
“We are excited to welcome Gina to St. John’s women’s soccer,” said Head Coach Ian Stone. “She is a dedicated and athletic goalkeeper that has a great deal of potential. We should now have a lot of depth in this position for the fall of 2021 and beyond.”
Prior to her time with the Pilots, Muzi served as the starting goalkeeper for FC Wisconsin. During that time, Muzi and her team advance to the ECNL National Playoffs in both 2017 and 2018. In addition, Muzi helped FC Wisconsin finish above .500 in the ECNL Midwest Conference for the first time in club history. In 2016, Muzi and her club closed out play with a perfect 3-0 record at the ECNL Phoenix, enjoying a nine-point weekend.
“Transferring to a different university I knew exactly what I was looking for, a competitive, challenging culture with positive energy and a great coaching staff,” said Muzi. “Once I got the opportunity to visit the campus and meet the coaches, it was clear that St. John’s would be a perfect fit for me. I couldn’t be happier to find such a great fit both athletically and academically. I’m looking forward to meeting my new teammates and competing in the BIG EAST.”
Muzi earned all-conference recognition in her one year playing for Kettle Moraine High School before committing to her club full time.
