The Crimson Wave women’s soccer team has announced the 4th commitment of the 2014-2015 class in the signing of Bronte Eather. Bronte is coming to CCSJ from Kirrawee High School in Sydney, Australia. “I am from Sydney Australia, the largest city in Australia. Sydney has a really warm climate most of the year and we live close to the beach, so I love swimming and surfing. I live with my Mum and Dad who are really supportive of me. I have 2 older brothers, one who lives in New York and one in Sydney. Growing up with 2 big brothers means I am pretty good at standing up for myself and have a few practical jokes up my sleeve,” said Bronte. Bronte will join two senior goalkeepers in the net and will also lend a foot in the midfield for the Crimson Wave.
“I was really impressed by the coach’s enthusiasm for the game and for the team. I understand he is trying to build capacity for the team’s future and think it represents a great opportunity for new players. I like the idea of being in smaller college, especially the smaller class sizes. But, I also like the fact that Chicago is close by,” said Bronte on joining the Crimson Wave. “It’s always exciting to join a new team and develop new friendships. As both an on field player and goalkeeper, I am looking forward to seeing where I can add the most value to the team. I really enjoy learning new set plays and am keen to understand the style, speed and strategy of the team,” added Bronte.
Bronte had a very successful high school and club career in Australia. Her accomplishments include:
“We are really excited to have Bronte join our team. Bronte is very well spoken and she really impressed me from the start. Bronte is a very well rounded player with the ability to play in goal and step on the field. That is very valuable to us. We will be training her in both positions to really get a feel for how she will best help our team. Bronte has great size and is a very smart player. We are excited for her to come in and compete and she will fit in very well with our current group,” said Coach Olson.
While attending CCSJ, Bronte plans on studying Media and Fine Arts.
“I want to excel academically and ensure that I achieve the best results I can. I am always trying to improve on my game and fitness, so that is a big goal. I really want to make a valuable contribution to the team and the school to justify Coach Olson’s faith in me as a player,” said Bronte.
