Despite a disappointing season for women’s soccer, there is still much that can be taken away. Many of the team’s athletes have shown great potential on this year’s team, yet one stands out from the rest. Brooke Osmanski, a sophomore forward for the URI women’s soccer team, has been named MVP by Cigar Sports.
Brooke Osmanski managed to score 30 percent of the team’s goals this year. She earned six points as well, (a system where two points are equal to one goal and one point is equal to one assist) tying Rebecca D’Anna for the most points by players this year. She managed to play 15 out of the last 18 games of the season, which is certainly an impressive statistic for a sophomore. Her percentage of shots on goal is 40.9 percent, and she once again tied Rebecca D’Anna with the most shots taken, with 22.
It’s really no wonder Brooke is the MVP this year. After all, she has shown tremendous promise in the time leading up to this season. When she was a senior, she was captain of her soccer team at North Kingstown High School and managed to score 38 goals in her career, along with 27 assists. She has been a member of several championship teams, including the Rams FC State championship team who won in 2015 and 2016, and of the Bayside FC State Championship team in 2017. If you want proof that Brooke Osmanski is not just a good soccer player but a great athlete in general, just look at how many varsity letters she received in her high school years. She received not one, but 12, varsity letters in high school, for various sports including track and field and of course soccer.
In 2017 she joined the URI soccer team and started in five games as a freshman. Now, just as a sophomore, she is perhaps the best on the team. It’s no wonder she has been named MVP.
