The only Wisconsin native to join the Gophers this upcoming season, Sydney Squires makes her way to Minneapolis from Hudson High School. Squires played at St. Croix Academy where she helped her team earn a Minnesota State Cup Championship in 2013 as well as a MRL championship in 2012 and a Disney Showcase Championship in 2013. Not only did Squires have a successful club soccer career, she was also a gifted hockey and tennis student-athlete at Hudson. She was a four-time letterwinner and a four-time All-Conference and All-State honorable mention. She also earned three letters in tennis where she was named to the All-Conference team and made it to the state tournament her junior and senior years. She plans to major in business or marketing at the University of Minnesota.
"Sydney Squires is the goalscorer of the group," said Coach Golan. "She is athletic and fit with a tremendous work rate and has a knack for scoring goals. She can score in the run of play, off service, with her head, and works extremely hard to be consistently dangerous. On top of that, she has the fitness base and work rate to do what we need on the defensive side of the ball, and we are excited to help her grow as a player over her 4 years as a Gopher."
