University of Minnesota signs German Youth National Team product Teresa Buonarroti

MINNEAPOLIS – University of Minnesota soccer head coach Erin Chastain has announced the addition of defender, Teresa Buonarroti. Buonarroti will join Minnesota next fall as a freshman.

“I chose the University of Minnesota for its outstanding athletic program, its membership in the exceptionally competitive Big Ten conference, and splendid facilities,” said Buonarroti. “The academic program is unique, and the coaching staff are incredibly supportive and kind. It’s the perfect combination for success both on and off the pitch.”

Hailing from Düsseldorf, Germany, the newcomer will bring a wealth of experience to the Maroon and Gold squad. A member of the German Youth National Team from U15-U17, Buonarroti was named MVP at the WU16 UEFA Development Tournament while competing against England.

As a prep, the defender competes with the SSV Strump boys team and has been a member since 2017. She led her teams to a U13 German Regional Cup title, U15 West Germany Indoor Champion, and placed second in the U17 Bundesliga.

The daughter of Andrea and Francesco Buonarroti, she intends to major in environmental sciences, policy and management. Teresa also has two siblings, Michelangelo and Luisa.
