LOGAN, Utah - Utah State head soccer coach Heather Cairns has announced the addition of Macy Martinez to the Aggie signing class for the 2018 season.
Martinez is the eighth player to sign from the state of Utah for this upcoming season, joining the Aggies from Murray (Utah) High School, where she played three seasons for Brady Smith. After missing her freshman season with an injury, Martinez tallied 39 goals and 10 assists over the next two years. She garnered all-region honors as a sophomore and all-state accolades her junior year. Martinez did not play high school soccer her senior year, as she participated in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy with her club team, La Roca, along with fellow signee Marli Niederhauser. Martinez played for La Roca for six seasons, where she was coached by Pancho Ovalle. Additionally, she was a three-time Utah Olympic Development Program (ODP) selection.
"We are thrilled to welcome Macy to the Aggie family," Cairns said. "She is a skilled, wide player with the courage to take defenders on in 1v1 situations. She has a fantastic change of pace that allows her to blow by defenders. Aggie fans will love watching her play."
Martinez joins another eight players as the incoming freshman class for 2018. Martinez, Jordan Forarker (Anchorage, Alaska/South Anchorage HS), Hallee Jones (Draper, Utah/Corner Canyon HS), Sammie Murdock (Providence, Utah/Ridgeline HS), Niederhauser (Mendon, Utah/Ridgeline HS), Marren Nielsen (Orem, Utah/Timpview HS), Rachel Noel (Centerville, Utah/Woods Cross HS), Sara Noel (Centerville, Utah/Woods Cross HS) and Kelsey Salvesen (Provo, Utah/Timpview HS) will all begin their education and soccer careers at Utah State this fall.
