Baylor senior Zoey Mize will continue her soccer career in college, signing a letter-of-intent Wednesday to play at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Mize is the second Baylor soccer player to sign a college scholarship this week, joining Aliya Cooper who signed with ETSU Tuesday.
Mize was an All-Region and All-State performer in 2020 and has been named to the 2021 All-Region team. The 2021 All-State team will be named later. She led Baylor with 15 goals and 17 assists this year, pacing the Red Raiders to a 16-2-2 record and a state runner-up finish. She was joined by teammates, family, and friends for a signing ceremony in Worsham Arena.
"Zoey came to Baylor as a junior and also during a COVID year, so it was a different dynamic for her first season," said Baylor coach Curtis Blair. "As a senior, she really had a great year for us. She is a very dangerous player who can run at the backline and either get her shot off or find one of her teammates for a great scoring opportunity. Zoey is a very competitive person and loves to compete in training and games. UTC is getting an outstanding soccer player but an even better person. She was one of our leaders and did a great job of bringing us together this year. She will be greatly missed, but will do great things for UTC."
UTC plays in the Southern Conference.
