Washington State adds All-Pac-12 midfielder Sydney Studer on transfer
PULLMAN, Wash. – Locking in one of the best transfers in the Pac-12, Washington State soccer head coach Todd Shulenberger announced the addition of Sydney Studer (Eastvale, Calif.). Studer spent her first three seasons at Oregon State as a star midfielder for the Beavers.
“We are super excited to be adding Sydney to the Cougs,” said Shulenberger. “In my opinion, she is one of the top players in the Pac-12, who has high standards both on and off the field. She will fit in perfectly with the Cougs! Welcome to Pullman Sydney.”
The 5-10 midfielder had a breakout year for the Beavers during the 2021 spring season, culminating in a selection to the United Soccer Coaches All-Pacific Region Second Team as well as earning All-Pac-12 Second Team honors. Despite a primary focus on the defensive end of the field, Studer proved to be Oregon State’s most potent offensive weapon as well as she led the team in points (14) and goals (7). Using her aerial skills to do her damage, Studer finished the season sixth in the Pac-12 in scoring. She earned one defensive player of the week award on April 5 after leading the Beavers to wins over Colorado (2-0) and Utah (3-1) including scoring a hat-trick against the Utes. One of the most durable players on the field, Studer came off the pitch for just 29 total minutes finishing the year having played 1453 minutes in 16 games as a junior.
In three seasons Studer started 51 of 53 games played while scoring 11 goals and recording one assist which came against the Cougs in 2019.
