The Florida State Seminoles secured their fourth national championship title in program history, capping off an undefeated season and solidifying their status as a powerhouse in women’s college soccer.
Leading the charge for the Seminoles were outstanding Black women players who played pivotal roles throughout the year.
The midfield dynamism was provided by Leilanni Nesbeth, contributing to the team’s success. Additionally, Jamaican national team player Jody Brown, a well-known talent, played a crucial role in the Seminoles’ triumphant campaign.
Both Jody Brown and Onyi Echegini had previously represented their nations in the Women’s World Cup over the summer, underlining the caliber of top-tier talent in the women’s college soccer scene.
As the spotlight often focuses on the professional arena, this victory highlights the immense skill and promise that Black women athletes continue to showcase, ensuring a bright future for women’s soccer.
