    Liberty women’s soccer and head coach Lang Wedemeyer have announced the signing of Saydie Holland, a transfer from Ole Miss.

    “We are incredibly excited to welcome Saydie into our soccer family,” Wedemeyer said. “Her great experience, awesome character, and concrete faith will make her a valuable addition to our program.”

    Throughout her three seasons at Ole Miss, Holland played in 58 career matches for the Rebels as a midfielder and as a forward scoring three goals along with a pair of assists. Holland has played in big games, scoring a goal in last year’s SEC Tournament and played in the Rebels’ win in the NCAA College Cup over No. 8 USC to advance to the Sweet 16.

    Prior to Ole Miss, Holland played at Sycamore High School in Sycamore, Ill. where she was a four-time letterwinner. As both a forward and midfielder, Holland helped lead the Spartans to the national finals in 2018 as well as four-straight state championships from 2015-18. Holland set Sycamore’s school records for career goals (106), career assists (58), single-season goals (29, 2018), and single-season postseason goals (7, 2018). She is a two-time SHS Player of the Year (2017-18) and three-time all-conference honoree (2016-18).

    Holland becomes the third SEC transfer within the last three seasons that Wedemeyer has signed at Liberty, joining McKinley Burkett and Bridie Herman who both came from Tennessee prior to arriving at Liberty.
