Georgia Rowntree has signed a National Letter of Intent, signalling her intention to become the newest member of the Australian contingent at Wyoming. Rowntree will join fellow Aussies Alisha Bass, Candace Sciberras, and Loren Mahoney in Laramie.
Georgia has been a member of Sutherland Sharks’ NSW Women’s Premier League squad since 2012, and has also been part of the Western Sydney Wanderers’ W-League squad since its inception 2 years ago. Georgia has also captained the Australian Schoolgirls’ team on a tour of Brazil and Argentina.
Wyoming currently have two goalkeepers in their squad: Alex Boehm, a senior who was the regular starter last season, and Abby Lindsay, a junior who played in 3 games last season, starting two. Both are one-time letter winners at Wyoming. Georgia will be hard-pressed to shift Boehm from the starting spot, but she definitely has the pedigree to make waves in Laramie. However, Georgia will not be the only new goalkeeper in the squad – the Cowgirls have also secured Cassidy Entsminger from Las Vegas.
