JOHNSON, Vt.-The Northern Vermont University-Johnson women's soccer program and Head Coach Andrew Lafrenz have announced the addition of Allison Irons for the 2019 campaign.
Irons comes to NVU-Johnson from Green Mountain College in Poultney, Vermont. Irons is a native of Fair Haven, Vermont and played her high school soccer at Fair Haven Union High School. When arrived at NVU-Johnson, Irons will be beginning her junior year as a student-athlete and will pursue a degree in Journalism with a minor in Philosophy.
"I choose to transfer to NVU-Johnson because of the support both academically and athletically I have received over the past few months", said Irons. "I am thrilled to be studying within the Journalism program here due to the students, faculty, and alum who I have met that have also studied journalism. Since I commuted daily to Green Mountain College, I am eager to move and live on a beautiful campus".
During her time at Green Mountain College, Irons was awarded the Scholar-Athlete Award in the fall of 2018 for achieving a 3.6 GPA. The transition for Irons both on the field and in the classroom will be a smooth transition.
Irons believes that the passion and support of the professors and Coach Lafrenz will make her transition an easy one. "After meeting Coach Lafrenz on my first visit to campus, I learned how passionate he towards helping his players on and off the soccer field", said Irons. "Coming from a collegiate team, I was looking for a coach who was determined to support his players through the college decision process, especially since I am a transfer student. Since the announcement of the closure of my previous college, Coach Lafrenz has been a great representative for NVU-Johnson and was the first coach to contact me about transferring to a new school for the fall. I look forward to becoming a Badger and working with such an amazing coach and mentor".
The Northern Vermont University-Johnson women's soccer program will announce additional commitments in the near future.
