2016: Started 17 competitions while competing in all 19 games of her debut season… Earned second-most minutes out of freshman class at 1153… Played predominately in the forward position… Secured two goals and three assists on the year… First collegiate goal was the game-winner against Texas A&M in the 48th minute…  Second goal of season came in a 2-2 draw against Kentucky… Assists came against Auburn, Mississippi State, and Tennessee…  Team-high 75% of shots on target.

Personal:
Began playing soccer at the age of four… played club for Harry Canellakis and Shannon Cirovski at Maryland United FC… chose Vanderbilt because, “It was an incredibly welcoming and beautiful campus, while also having top-notch academics"… Father played football at Howard University, sisters Imani plays soccer for Duke… chose Vanderbilt over Boston University and William & Mary.

Coach Ambrose on Nia: “Nia will be an asset to our front line this fall. She has a good physical presence, is comfortable on the ball and sees the game very well in the final third.”
