AWC’s Victoria Clark signs on to play for Southern Miss
The winger saw plenty of success during her time at AWC, now she'll get a chance to take her talents to a Division I program with the Golden Eagles
YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Arizona Western College womens soccer standout Victoria Clark officially signed her letter of intent today.
The star winger will be continuing her career over at the University of Southern Mississippi.
Clark was among the best players in the country while at AWC.
The former San Luis sidewinder scored a career high 14 goals last season, along with nine assists.
Her Matador career saw immense team success as well, with AWC taking home two region one titles in both of Clark’s seasons.
“They helped me a lot, I learned a lot here, both with my coaches and my teammates, I was able to learn a lot of different styles of playing,” Clark said.
Head coach Ivan Dizdar says Clark's impact off the field was just as important.
“Off the field, really great teammate, helped us really create a great culture here. We’re all about hard work, discipline and also having fun, and she really embodied that I thought. 3.7 GPA, so you can’t ask for anything better than a great student and tremendous athlete,” Dizdar said.
Clark tells us she plans on majoring in speech pathology and audiology, hoping to eventually come back to the Desert Southwest to help local kids with speech issues.
