With the season less than three months away, Vanderbilt soccer continues to introduce members of its 2014 signing class. Today, we welcome a defender from Olympia, Wash.: Logan Cox
Born in the soccer hotbed that is the Pacific Northwest, Logan Cox began booting around the soccer ball when she was 3 years old.
At age 7, she was already playing competitively for the Washington Premier FC. Idolizing her sister, Mikaela, who played collegiately at Santa Barbara City College, Cox wore the same jersey number during her high school career.
Growing up on the pitch, Cox brings a competitive attitude to the Vanderbilt soccer team.
“Logan is a player that will add depth and stability to our program,” coach Derek Greene said. “She comes from an excellent club environment and will provide herself the chance to compete at the highest level while she competes for playing time. Logan wanted a quality challenge in an environment like ours and we think she has a chance to improve during her career here with us.”
Cox started on defense at Capital High School in Olympia, Wash., all four years and earned all-league honors every year. As a freshman, she helped the Cougars finish fourth at state. Her freshman year she was named the team’s rookie of the year and, as a junior, she earned offensive player of the year honors. She was also an Academic All-American.
With Washington Premier FC, she helped her team reach the ECNL Champions League national championship qualifier in 2012 and 2013. Washington Premier also won the Washington state championship in 2011 and was a Far West Regional semifinalist.
