The UTEP women’s soccer program has found themselves a new goalkeeper and they did not have to look far. Montwood High School standout Zoey Lopez signed her national letter of intent to play for the Miners on Wednesday.
Lopez transferred to Montwood as a junior and played one year of varsity soccer for the Rams. She was named First Team All-District this past season, leading the Rams to six wins in 2019. The next level Ram was also named District 1-6A Goalkeeper of the Year.
“It’s really important because I plan on playing pro soccer soon,” said Lopez. “It will probably be after college, so I feel like this will help me go to that next level.”
We want to welcome the newest member to the 2019 singing class Zoey Lopez!!
She comes from Dallas and holds plenty of experience at goalkeeper and we look forward to her joining the team!#UTEPSoccer ⛏️ pic.twitter.com/jHKF7NA9Nq — UTEPSoccer (@UTEPSoccer) April 19, 2019
