NDSU soccer adds Savona to staff
North Dakota State University soccer head coach Mike Regan announced the addition of Emily Savona to the coaching staff on Monday, August 2.
Savona will join the Bison ahead of the 2021 season as a graduate assistant and serve as the director of soccer operations after wrapping up her four-year collegiate playing career at Hood College this spring. Savona played in 49 career games at Hood, scoring a goal and three assists in her time as a Blazer.
The Jackson, New Jersey native, who was a two-sport student-athlete for the Blazers, also played four seasons of lacrosse during her time in Frederick, Maryland. Savona made 45 career appearances with 38 starts in defense.
“We’re pleased to add Emily and her experience as a student-athlete to our staff,” Regan said. “Emily will bring a wealth of experience, not only playing, but in leadership and professionally, that will benefit our Bison student-athletes and our program as a whole.”
Savona was also a part of the leadership team at Hood, representing her teams on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, while attending the Middle Atlantic Conference Women’s Leadership Symposium, the NCAA Career in Sport Forum and the NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Training Forum. Savona also served as the student-athlete representative on a coaching search and the athletics working group for Hood College’s strategic plan.
