Vanderbilt soccer on Wednesday signed eight high schoolers to round out its class of 2025; a class that has been named No. 1 in the Southeastern Conference (SEC) and No. 15 in the nation by TopDrawerSoccer.

“I am very optimistic about this class of young women arriving in Nashville next year,” head coach Darren Ambrose said in a press release.

Ambrose credited associate head coach and recruiting coordinator Ken Masuhr, as well as assistant coach Kelly Keelan for spearheading the Commodores’ recruiting efforts.

Among the eight signees are four forwards in Myla McLeod from East Meadow, New York; Addie Porter from Asheville, North Carolina; Rachel Deresky from Dunkirk, Maryland; Hillary Schroeder from Elfin Forest, California. The Commodores also added two midfielders in Quinn Cornog from Dallas, Texas and Shania Diaz from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, a defender in Emma Mueller from St. Louis, Missouri and a goalkeeper in Sara Wojdelko from Northville, Michigan.

“They are very, very talented and have the potential to leave a lasting impact on the program. They cover a lot of positions on the field. Off of the field, they are charismatic, hard-working people who represent themselves in a manner consistent with the values of our program,” Ambrose said.
