After a breakout summer performance in the Women’s Premier Soccer League, FC Indiana’s 15-year old midfielder Olivia Shaw has emerged as one of the top Midwest prospects in the class of 2019 — a player who is drawing a lot of interest from D1 programs.
Shaw spent the summer competing for FC Indiana’s Under-20 team on the WPSL U-20 circuit and for FC Indiana WPSL team, where she is cementing her status as one of the top prospects in the 2019 class. Her status as a player on the rise was solidified when in 2015 she helped lead the team to WPSL U-20 National Final Four in Oklahoma City.
Shaw’s FC Indiana coach - Justin Crew - said Shaw has made a huge progress in the last 6 months. “Watching her train and play, you can see that she is only going to get better,” said Crew.
“She is a leader on the U-20 team and has no problems competing against college players. In two more years I expect her to be a very good collegiate player,” added Crew.
Shaw will be a sophomore at Chesterton High School this fall, which, of course, means she has plenty of time to sort out her college decision. But as she prepares for a busy recruiting period, she’s readying for the added attention.
