(April 4, 2017) – The Boston Breakers announced today the signing of goalkeeper Sammy Jo Prudhomme. Per team and league policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The No. 31 overall pick in the 2017 National Women’s Soccer League College Draft in January, Prudhomme starred at the University of Southern California, helping the Trojans secure the 2016 NCAA Division 1 National Championship. Prudhomme is a goalkeeper replacement for Libby Stout, who is sidelined with an ankle injury.
“Sammy has done well so far in our preseason camp,” Boston Breakers head coach Matt Beard said. “She has a great attitude, and we are looking forward to seeing how she develops.”
The 5-foot, 10-inch Aliso Viejo, Calif. native was named the 2016 Pac-12 Goalkeeper of the Year and earned NSCAA All-Pacific Region honors. She started all 23 games for the Trojans in 2016, registering a school-record 14 shutouts. Her .906 save percentage ranked sixth in the nation. Prior to her two years at USC, Prudhomme played two seasons at Oregon State, making 188 saves.
“I’m happy to have received a contract with the Boston Breakers and I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to play with such a good team,” Prudhomme said. “I look forward to continuing to compete and play with this team every day.”
