CHICAGO - Sarah Schrader, a junior goalkeeper from Metamora, Ill., has decided to transfer to Saint Xavier University to continue both her athletic and academic career as a member of the Cougar women's soccer program. Schrader played two seasons at Illinois Central College in East Peoria, Ill., and played prep soccer at Metamora High School in Metamora, Ill. She was coached by Danny Driscoll during her prep career at Metamora High School.
Schrader is the daughter of Martin and Cheryl Schrader of Metamora. She is planning to pursue a degree in biochemistry starting this fall at Saint Xavier University. SXU women's soccer coach Jeremy Ekeler thinks the addition of Schrader is a big boost for the program.
"On her first visit to our campus, it was clear that Sarah was a great fit with the rest of the team," said Ekeler. "That chemistry, plus the fact that our program can boast another goalkeeper with a high level of experience, makes this an exciting signing for Saint Xavier women's soccer and for Sarah. We expect her to come in and immediately raise the level of training intensity as she competes with returner Ashley Shugar and incoming freshman Anita Balciumas."
