Class Brings Wealth of Talent
Coach Baker: "Amanda is going to be a welcomed addition to our front line here at FAU and will give us an immediate scoring threat. We saw her a few times this fall and each game she showed marked progression. She shows a willingness to defend as much as she wants to attack and has a high-level work rate. Amanda has displayed the ability to beat players off the dribble, through combination play and by being sophisticated with her off the ball runs. We hope she continues to create quality chances for herself and for her teammates like she did at the Junior College level."
Before FAU: Lodge, a former student at Eastern Florida State College, was the second leading goal scorer in 2013 and helped lead her team to a Region 8 championship and an NJCAA national tournament appearance. While attending Fleming Island High School, Lodge had three state final four appearances and was a U.S. Club Soccer National Champion in 2010.
