Athens, GA - Georgia head soccer coach Steve Holeman announced on Tuesday that forward Madison Meyers of Highlands Ranch, Colo., has signed a national letter of intent to attend UGA and play in 2011 for the Bulldogs.
Meyers, a product of Valor Christian High School, was a two-time all-state selection for the Eagles and played for Real Colorado along with two of Georgia’s incoming freshmen Bella Hartley and Jenna Owens.
“Madison is fun player to watch because of her imagination on the ball,” said Georgia coach Steve Holeman. “She has the nerve to try things that a lot of players would never even consider. She’s very creative with dynamic speed and exceptional technical ability. Madison’s a frustrating player to defend because she’s so clever and has that goal-scorer’s knack for popping up in the right place at the right time and finishing her chances.”
As a high school junior Meyers helped guide Valor Christian to the state finals for the second straight season and was an all-state selection both years. She was also an all-state athlete as a member of the Eagles’ track team.
The Bulldogs will open the 2011 season at Furman on Aug. 19. The home opener is slated for Friday, Aug. 26 against Texas.
