Feb. 14, 2014
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – University of Memphis women’s soccer head coach Brooks Monagahan announced Thursday that St. Ignatius of Loyola High School standout Veronica Bosco has signed her National Letter of Intent to join the Lady Tigers for the 2014-15 campaign. Bosco completes the 2014-15 signing class.
“I think Roni is a versatile player that we could play as a center forward or attacking center-mid,” Monaghan said. “She’s a player that is very skilled and she reads the game extremely well. Roni is very dangerous on set pieces and uses her soccer brain to her advantage. She has a lot of potential and we look forward to seeing her development here at Memphis.”
Bosco competed in soccer, gymnastics, track and field, cross country, basketball and hockey at St. Ignatius of Loyola in Ottawa, Ontario. Bosco was a member of the Ontario Provincial soccer teams from 2009-13 and won national championships in 2009, 2010 and 2011. She picked up the Golden Boot award at the Canadian National Tournament in 2009 and 2010.
On the club level, Bosco plays for Glen Shields and Kitchener Waterloo United of the W League. She has been a member of the U15 Canadian National team and U17 Canadian National Team pool.
Veronica is the daughter of Luciano and Mary Bosco. A third-generation footballer, her grandfather Domenic played professionally in Italy, her uncle Carlo played professionally in Canada and the United States.
