Former Cody High School and Northwest College Soccer Player Genevieve Sauers will be continuing her Soccer Career.

On Wednesday, it was announced that Sauers will be playing for the Florida Gulf Coast Dutch Lions FC Team.

Florida Gulf Coacst Dutch Lions FC is the fourth (of nine) Dutch Lions FC club in the USA.

Sauers, most recently played for the Idaho State Bengals, of the Big Sky Conference, as a midfielder.

She was named an Academic All-American in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons.

According to her Idaho State Bio, Head Coach Debs Brereton on Sauers: “Genevieve was a standout at our ID Camp last Fall. Her physical presence and athleticism will strengthen out backline immensely. Her terrific career at Northwest College will set her up to come in and make an immediate impact for us this fall. Her work ethic and commitment to being in the best physical shape coincides with our standard of excellence. Her ability to win 1v1 battles on the ground and dominate aerial challenges is outstanding.”

The Women’s Premier Soccer League is the longest active women’s soccer league in the United States. Established in 1998, the WPSL has grown at an average of 12% over its 23-season history – a consistent trend rarely achieved in team sports that also makes it the largest women’s soccer league in the world.

The WPSL is sanctioned by the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA)– an affiliate of the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), the ruling body of soccer in the United States.

Genevieve will be returning to ISU for one more season in the fall (COVID Year Extra Season).

WPSL is a summer semi-pro league for mainly college players which allows them to return for July pre-season practices.
