Teagan Wy Joins Cal Women’s Soccer
BERKELEY - California women's soccer head coach Neil McGuire announced the addition of Teagan Wy to the team for the 2022-23 school year on Wednesday. Wy is one of the nation's best goalkeepers in the class of 2022.
"We welcome Teagan and her family to our program," McGuire said. "She is a fabulous goalkeeper, showcased by her selection to the U20 United States National Team. Teagan is very talented in the build and will be a catalyst for our offense, while also being a gifted shot-stopper. Beyond that she is a person of immense character, a future leader of our team. As a student, she has a very strong academic track record."
Wy has been involved with the US Youth National Teams for the past four years, participating on 10 different occasions across various age levels, starting at U14 level and participating in a U20 camp last month in Chula Vista, California. She was selected to the camp as one of the three-best American goalkeepers at the U20 age level. She was also the starting goalkeeper for the United States at the 2018 CONCACAF Championship as she led the USA to a Championship by beating Mexico, El Salvador and Portugal.
Wy is ranked as the 18th-best prospect in the class of 2022 and a four-star prospect. According to Top Drawer Soccer, Wy is the fourth-best goalkeeper in the country and rated as the third best player in the West Region. By any measure, Wy is one of the top goalkeeper recruits in the country.
On the club level, Wy has played for the SoCal Blues Soccer Club and head coach Terri Petraw. She helped the SoCal Blues to the 2019 Surf Cup Championship, the 2020 Playoff Quarterfinals and a top three ranking in the ECNL Southwest Conference. She has participated in multiple showcase events earning DA Standout honors on 22 occasions. She's also been named in six Best XI's most recently in the 2021 U17 National Playoffs held in Florida.
"Teagan is going to be an integral part of our program, joining a long line of outstanding goalkeepers at Cal," Assistant Coach and Goalkeeper Coach Cori Callahan said. "Her work ethic can be matched by no one. She is one of the most complete goalkeepers you will see, with an incredibly bright future ahead. There is no stopping her drive for excellence on or off the field."
In the classroom, Wy has been named to the honor roll each of the past two years. She's also earned IB Class recognition. She has also participated in Eagle Outreach in conjunction with St. Joseph's hospital, where she helps support children in need by creating fun group activities.
