Samantha Roff from Canberra, Australia who, after fielding interest from NCAA D1 colleges across the USA, has signed a full ride scholarship with Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) Women’s Soccer in Teaneck, New Jersey (NCAA D1, Northeast Conference). Samantha is an impactful and versatile Forward, and Right Back. From 2012 - 2015, Samantha was a scholarship player with the ACT Academy of Sport (the FFA’s U17 National Training Centre in Canberra), and this year has secured a 'train on' agreement with Canberra United (W-League, Australia). Samantha is a solid student who will be looking at completing a Business (Marketing) degree and will be joining FDU in Spring 2016.
FDU Women’s Soccer had a standout 2015 season with a 16-6 record under the guidance of second year coach Eric Teepe, reaching the first round of the NCAA D1 Tournament, with a narrow 1-0 loss to 3rd ranked (nationally) Rutgers University, a program record! In his first year, Coach Teepe also guided FDU to its first Northeast Conference Regular Season Title after posting a 6-1-1 conference record and advanced to the NEC Championship game.
Very excited for Samantha who will make a big impact at FDU.
