Shireen Unvala has committed to play women’s soccer at Greensboro College, announced Pride Head Coach Ian Spooner.

A native of Sinking Spring, Pa., Unvala attended Wilson High School. She twice earned All Division honors as a goalkeeper. Unvala started between the pipes as a freshman on the AAA State semifinal team.

Unvala played club soccer for the FC DELCO Force 93/94. She also was on the ODP State team (2004-09) and played on the City Islanders Super Y squad.

Off the pitch, she is a member of the National Junior Honor Society and was a regular member of the honor roll. Unvala also was a member of the Key club and served as junior class secretary.

“We are excited to have Shireen join our program,” said Spooner. “She is a very driven student and I’m sure she will excel on our campus. As a player, she has very good fundamentals and will add quality to our program.”

The Greensboro College women’s soccer team finished the 2010 campaign with an overall record of 12-6-1, 5-3-1 in USA South play. The Pride finished third in the USA South conference and reached the semifinals of the conference tournament.
