Lot Signed to VSU

Senior, Liz Lott, recently announced her commitment to play soccer for Valdosta State University in Fall 2016. On Wednesday, Feb. 3, she officially signed with VSU.

Her signing took place at Wooden Nickel Pub, Wednesday night, at 5:30 p.m., where family and friends came to show their support.

Lott had a hard decision to make between Kennesaw State and Valdosta State, because they were both schools she was looking forward to playing for. After a long process of trying to make the best decision, she chose VSU.

“I’m excited! I chose VSU because it’s close to home and I love the coach, all the players, and how it’s a possession oriented team,” said Lott.

Lott has been playing soccer for ten years. She made the state region team and won two bronze, Olympic Development Program, ODP, medals in the ODP national championship.

Kendall Snellgrove, sophomore and also a former teammate of Lott came to show her support at the signing Wednesday. “Liz is like a big sister to me and I can always rely on her for anything. She is an exceptional soccer player and an even better person. I only got to play soccer with her for one season, but I’ve been watching her play for years,” said Snellgrove.

Lott has had an impact as a good role model for Snellgrove. “I was so excited and proud of her when she signed to go play for VSU and I know she’ll shine like the soccer star she is,” said Snellgrove.

Lott is one out of the 12 other recruits who signed to play for the Blazers. VSU Women’s Soccer Program is set to start training in August.
