Indiana Native Molly Pittman Transfers To Indiana University
April 28, 2014
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana women's soccer head coach Amy Berbary announced that Molly Pittman (Carmel, Ind./Carmel HS) has transferred to Indiana University and will be eligible to play starting with the 2014 season. Pittman was a Second Team All-Southern Conference player last year while playing at Samford University.
"Molly is a tremendous player with great character, that comes from a great family," Berbary said. "We are thrilled to have her join our program and look forward to what she is able to bring to Indiana University on and off the field."
Pittman played in all 21 games last year for Samford, making 20 starts on her way to receiving Second Team All-SoCon and All-Freshman Team honors from the conference as a defender. She picked up two assists on the season as the Bulldogs finished with a 13-6-2 overall record and a 5-3-2 mark in SoCon play. She was an instrumental part of a backline that only allowed 24 goals and accumulated seven shutouts during the 2013 season.
The Carmel, Ind., native graduated from Carmel High School early and enrolled at Samford in the Spring of 2013 after garnering first team all-state accolades. She was ranked in the top 15 of the Great Lakes Region by Top Drawer Soccer and the 29th best defender in the country by IMG Academy coming out of high school. In addition to attending the United State Club Soccer National Camp for three years, she was also a three-time member of the Indiana ODP state team and ODP Regional A Pool player.
Pittman is the daughter of Steve and Shelly Pittman, with her father playing collegiate tennis at the University of Arizona. She intends to major in Exercise Science.
