Savage, a captain at American Fork for the 2017 season, started as a defender for the Lady Cavemen last year. She was also the back-up goalie behind Lauren Van Woerkom, an All-Region goalkeeper. While Savage has been willing to play as a defender, Savage said, “I’m looking for varsity starting goalie.”
Savage has been a member of Utah Mamaci, where she played as goalie in high-profile events such as the IWCLA’s Presidents Cup. According to her Next College Student Athlete profile, she has also appeared with the West Coast Starz Black 2019 team at the 3d Mid Atlantic Tournament.
Savage has been excited about the prospect of playing at Central Michigan. “The coaching staff really stuck out to me,” said Savage. “They showed that they really cared about me as a person and as a player.”
The Chippewas are in their third varsity season, now as new members of the Southern Conference. The conference contains CMU, as well as Delaware State, Furman, Mercer, Detroit Mercy, and Wofford. The conference was formed for the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. CMU was previously a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference in their first two years as a varsity sport. Last year, five Chippewa players earned All-SUN honors.
A junior, Savage still wants to make the most of her high school experience. “I would like to make another appearance at the state championship game,” said Savage. “I want to be a leader on my team and have fun. As well as improve and get ready for college.”
Savage credits her family and Mamaci coaches for her success. “Amy, Maggie, Kenna, Soni, and Cass have been very helpful over this last bit especially,” said Savage.
