Blakely on choosing the College of Charleston: “I chose College Of Charleston because I think it will be a great fit for me on and off the field. The coaching staff and players really made me feel welcome during my first visit on campus. I love my hometown of Charleston and can’t wait to become a Cougar.”
Club Coach Phil Savitz on Blakely: “Sarah Blakely is a very technical, versatile and highly competitive athlete! She is a dangerous attacking player who is equally skilled at beating defenders one-on-one and finishing in a variety of ways, or setting up a teammate who is in a better position than herself. Sarah is very excited to continue her soccer career in her hometown and we wish her all the best and look forward to watching her play and following her progress at College of Charleston!”
