Ella Wilson signed a soccer scholarship with Fairmont State University, an NCAA Division II college located in West Virginia.

We met Ella in Wellington through the Wellington United Soccer Coach Guillermo Schiltenwolf. Ella is a class player and has been involved in the New Zealand Women’s National League. She is a defender and has also been involved in New Zealand National Squads.

After looking at a number of options, Ella thought Fairmont State University was the perfect fit for her. Fairmont State has just over 5,000 students on campus and competes in the Moutain East Conference. They are very competitive in their conference, and after Ella’s 2018 season, they finished second in their conference out of MEC North Division. Ella has also earned soccer honours including being named defender of the week. Fairmont State has a great campus life and has recently new facilities.

We are very happy to see Ella enjoying her time at Fairmont State. We cannot wait to see how her 2019 August season will go!
