WORCESTER, Mass. – Holy Cross women’s soccer senior Caroline Wallace has signed on to play professional soccer with Ambilly Feminin FC in France. The club is part of the French women's second division football championship, also known as Division 2, the second-highest national level in French women's football.
“We are extremely proud of Caroline and are very excited to see her represent our program playing professionally,” Holy Cross head coach Casey Brown said. “This is an amazing opportunity for her to compete at the highest level, as well as immerse herself into a new culture by living in France. The process of Caroline's maturation as a player and person to get to this stage perfectly epitomizes what this program is about--getting better every day. It takes a special person to get to this level and commit to the game as Caroline has, and we could not be happier. Ambilly Feminin FC is getting a great addition in Caroline.”
Wallace was named to both the All-Patriot League Third Team and the All-New England Second Team after her senior season. She was a huge part of the Crusader defense all year, anchoring the unit and helping them to shutout wins over Fordham, Lafayette, Loyola (Md.), and Army. Wallace started all 17 games bringing her career total to 55 starts in 63 games. She recorded a goal and an assist during her time as a Crusader with the goal coming in a 1-0 win over American in her sophomore season.
“I am so excited to join Ambilly Feminin for their next season,” Wallace said. “I think the experience is going to be like no other and I could not be more grateful to continue my soccer career playing professionally. I can’t thank my coaches at Holy Cross enough for how they have helped my level of play grow over the last three and a half years.”
