DETROIT, Mich. -- Warren Fitzgerald 2010 graduate, Stephanie Pilarski, will return to competitive soccer after signing a 2013-14 Letter of Intent to resume her playing career for the Marygrove College Mustangs. The signing is the fourth of the 2013 class for head coach Tony Williams and the women's soccer program.
Pilarski, a 5'4" defender, has never left the game after hanging up her high school cleats in 2010. Staying active with rec leagues and coaching, Pilarski will look to bolster the backline after the Mustangs lost four-year starter and USCAA First Team All-American defender, Jessie Niemi.
While at Fitzgerald, Pilarski enjoyed a successful career in the very competitive Macomb Area Conference (MAC). The defender showcased the consistency needed for the next level by being named a four-time selection to the MAC-Silver Division All-Conference Team for the Fitzgerald Spartans. Pilarski, a multi-sport student-athlete, was on the varsity swimming team for three years and competed on the varsity tennis squad for another. Pilarski also earned four varsity letters as a member of the Fitzgerald Spartan Marching Band.
Pilarski will major in Forensic Science at Marygrove College.
Coach Williams on Pilarski: We will look for Stephanie to come in and battle for a starting spot. She is one of many players on our roster that we are hoping fills a need for us heading into the 2013 season. I look forward to coaching Stephanie and the rest of the team soon.
