Congratulations to Upper 90 College APAC client Laura Farrelly on her commitment to Marshall University Women's Soccer in West Virginia (NCAA D1, Conference USA) for 2018 on a near full ride scholarship! Laura is a very talented Holding Center Midfielder, equally proficient in the Attacking Midfield role. Laura currently plays for Manly United FC in the NSW Women's Premier League. Laura is a solid student and is focusing on studying within a sports science related field.
The Thundering Herd play in the very competitive Conference USA amid teams such as Rice, North Texas and Florida Atlantic to name a few. Review site Niche had placed Marshall in the Top 100 schools for 'Best College Athletics', and with that Laura will be plying her trade under the guidance of highly respected and tenured Head Coach Kevin Long and Assistant Coach Erika Duncan. Coach Long coached each of the Marshall’s 11 all-time All-Conference USA honorees and five of the Herd’s six National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) all-region award recipients.
We are very excited for Laura, who fielded a number of top quality programs across all divisions, though settled on Marshall for it's alignment to her academic track, the competitiveness of the team and conference and the excellent guidance provided by the coaches and staff throughout the recruiting cycle!
