SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – The UC Santa Barbara Women's Soccer program has signed holding midfielder Rallie Odell to a National Letter of Intent for the 2019 season, Head Coach Paul Stumpf announced.
Odell arrives at UCSB from Santa Barbara, Calif., having played her club soccer for Santa Barbara Soccer Club (SBSC) in the Coast Soccer League Premier under current UCSB Women's Soccer Assistant Coach Mario Felix. She played as a defensive and attacking midfielder for her club team.
"We are always excited when we get some homegrown talent into the program. Rallie was born, raised, and did all her training right here in Santa Barbara. Due to some recent and significant health issues, that are thankfully in her rear-view mirror, we expect her first year to be one focused on getting her strength and fitness back. Once that has happened, we will see what this technical, smart, and competitive central midfielder can do," Stumpf said on Odell.
The 5' 4" midfielder also played for San Marcos High School (SMHS) in the Channel League under Head Coach Jennifer Sotelo. There, she also played in both attacking and defensive midfield. She earned second team Channel League honors with SMHS.
In addition to soccer, Odell also competed in track and field.
In the classroom, Odell was recognized as an AP Scholar by the College Board.
