Lee's Summit, Mo. – Stephens College head soccer coach Lance Gordon announced the addition of Emily York to the Star's roster for 2017-18.
“Emily will bring a definite outside presence to the wing, either in defense or in the midfield,” stated Coach Gordon. “She has a unique skill set moving into the attack that I haven’t seen in the conference, so I think that will be a positive addition to our attack that we will enjoy exploiting in 2017.”
“She’s quite a fun person and has a passion for the game as well as Stephens College,” Coach Gordon added.
Emily began playing soccer when she was five years old. Her club team, KC Prime, was the 2016 US Soccer Region II President’s Cup Champions and a National President’s Cup Semi-Finalist. She was also the captain of her high school’s C-team during their undefeated season.
Emily chose Stephens College because it was a perfect fit for her major and as a bonus it included the ability to continue her soccer career.
When asked what she most looks forward to at Stephens, Emily stated, “making new memories, learning more about my major and career choice, meeting new people, playing soccer, and the dogs of course.”
Emily, the daughter of David and Tina York, plans to major in fashion marketing and management at Stephens. After college, she sees herself running a small business and owning her own boutique.
