Why Pitt:
“I chose Pitt because I really like the coaching staff and I’ll be able to learn and develop so much more. I love the whole culture they’re building, and I really wanted to be a part of it. I loved the campus when I first stepped foot on it, and I wanted a change from where I live now. Pitt also has a great business program, which is another reason why I wanted to go there. Altogether, I just felt like Pitt was the perfect fit for me.”

Waldrum on Fetsko:
“Ione is going to add some personality to our team in addition to the soccer experience she brings.  She’s a tall striker with athleticism and the technical ability to add to an emerging attacking line. I think she has the versatility to play in multiple positions, but most of her success has come playing up front.  She is another player we saw early on in the recruiting process and have wanted her here in our program for a while now. She has some quality to her finishing and has the pace to get behind defenses as well. She brings a level of fight and determination with her game and gives it all every time out… fearless.”
