Mariah Scott has signed a national letter of intent to attend UTEP and play with the Miner soccer program beginning with the 2020 fall season, UTEP head coach Kathryn Balogun announced Friday.
“Mariah will bring depth to our goalkeeping position. She is also is a great reminder to never burn bridges. I met Mariah and her family while recruiting for another school. I was happy for her when she took an offer somewhere else,” UTEP head coach Kathryn Balogun shared.
“Years later she reached out to see if we were looking for a goalkeeper, and after a year where we only had one health keeper on the roaster we were. I’m excited to see how she comes in to help our team and build our culture.”
Scott, a San Antonio native, played one year with LSU Eunice, and will have three seasons of eligibility with the Miners. While at LSU Eunice, she started 17 games, helping the team finish with a mark of 13-3-1.
She compiled 10 shutouts, yielded just 11 goals for a 0.70 goals against average and is credited with 53 saves for an .828 save percentage. Overall, Scott logged a total of 1422 minutes of playing time on the season.
During a match against Hill College (10/19/19) Scott is credited with a career-high nine saves, with at least five stops in five other contests.
“We are excited to add Mariah to our 2020 team. We think that Mariah will help push our goalkeeper group as soon as she steps on campus. She is a goalkeeper that likes to compete and work hard,” UTEP assistant coach/recruiting coordinator Stewart Givens said.
“In getting to know her and seeing her play it is apparent that she will fit in to our culture as a team and within our goalkeeper union. I can’t wait to start working with her and the rest of the goalkeepers to build on a strong start we had as a group after our first year together.”
