This past Sunday, March 25 marked an important milestone for the UTM women’s varsity soccer team. Georgetown-native, Sydney Miller, has officially accepted her offer to UTM and will be enrolled in the life sciences program. She has been playing soccer since the age of five and is looking forward to continuing her career at the OCAA level.

When asked if she is excited about attending UTM, Miller said, “Yeah for sure. I’m ready for the change cause where I go to school right now, it’s tiny. And like the town is tiny so I know practically everybody. So, I’m excited to meet new people.” Although Miller is excited, feeling nervous is also common for first-years. “Anything new like this change, you kind of get nervous no matter what,” Miller admits.

Head coach, Damian Yearwood, is also looking forward to having Miller join the team. “Sydney has a surprising amount of surety and composure for a young defender,” says Yearwood. “In the fast-paced demands of OCAA soccer, that is an incredibly valuable attribute.”

With her calm demeanor, she will be a huge benefit to the defensive line. The UTM women’s soccer team is fortunate to have both a confident and calm player join their team next season.
