CHARLOTTE — Queens University of Charlotte’s head women’s soccer coach Katie Talbert announced the addition of Lydia Mauney to her program following the early signing period. Mauney, a defender, joined the Royals spring semester after completing high school early.
“We are very excited to have Lydia joining us this spring,” Talbert said. “Her high school and club coaches have provided her excellent training that will allow her to jump right in with our current squad.”
Mauney, the former Watauga standout, played varsity for the Pioneers for three years. She also played club for the Lake Norman Soccer Club. In 2009, her under-15 Eclipse Lake Norman Soccer team traveled to Europe where they won the Dana Cup in Denmark and the Lions Gold Cup in Germany.
Off the field, the National Honor Society member has also made her mark. Upon
graduation, the Health Occupations Students of America Club member and officer
will graduate with her CNA License. Mauney is also a member of the Beta Club,
SADD, Young Life and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Additionally, Mauney demonstrates the Queens motto, “Not to be served, but to serve,” by making time to participate in many community service projects with youth ministry groups at Boone United Methodist Church and St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church.
Mauney plans to major in nursing at Queens.
