The Mount Vernon Nazarene College women's soccer team is pleased to announce that Meghan Schymanski has signed a letter of intent to further her education and continue her soccer career at MVNC.
Schymanski, a native of Elida, Ohio, posted 12 shutouts in 19 matches as a goalkeeper for Elida High School during the 2000 season. She also compiled an outstanding 0.53 goals against average. For her efforts, Schymanski received Special Mention in the Western Buckeye League and was selected as Elida High School's Most Valuable Player in 2000.
"I am glad that Meghan has chosen to become a Lady Cougar," said MVNC head coach Jonathan Meade. "Her work ethic is definitely one of her strongest qualities that she will add to the team. She will challenge at the goalkeeper position next fall and really push the other keepers."
"After Meghan's first visit to MVNC, I knew that she was the right fit for our team," Meade added. "Her faith, personality, and strong commitment to academics are things that are attractive because they all carry high value to our team and institution."
In addition to her success on the soccer field, Schymanski was a member of National Honor Society. She was also active in Teens for Christ.
"I have chosen to attend MVNC because of its Christian atmosphere, good educational programs, and women's soccer program," said Schymanski of her college choice. "I also like the small size of the college and the town of Mount Vernon."
The Lady Cougars posted a very respectable 11-8-0 record in 2000 in the program's first year as a varsity sport. Only three players will graduate from the team, and the future looks bright for MVNC women's soccer.
