Howard University (HU) Women's Soccer team added 10 players including Koa Goodchild to the upcoming 2021 season, including four transfers from the Atlantic Coast Conference, Big East, and Southeastern Conference.
"We are very excited about our incoming class," said Howard women's soccer head coach Brent Leiba. "This class brings a wealth of talent, versatility, athleticism, and experience. In addition to our returning players, it allows us to have an exceptionally competitive environment and an immediate opportunity to compete as we transition into the NEC (Northeast Conference). We are looking forward to this upcoming year."
In fall 2021, Coach Leiba and the players will return to the field after more than a year away due to COVID-19.
Goodchild arrives to HU after playing on the Bermuda National Under 15, Under 17 & Under 20 Teams where she helped the team win the CONCACAF Championship. The team captain guided the club in the World Cup Qualifiers.
She selected Howard because of its HBCU culture, prestigious reputation, and networking opportunities.
