Steinbrenner’s Gonzalez commits to join sister at University of Tampa

Steinbrenner junior defender Miranda Gonzalez said she has verbally committed to play soccer at the University of Tampa. Gonzalez earned All-Hillsborough County first team honors in her first two seasons with the Warriors. As a freshman, she helped anchor the defense for the 2011 Class 4A state champions.
Last season Gonzalez helped the Warriors to a 16-4-2 record and a third-straight district title. On top of aiding the defense, she also chipped in with two goals.
Gonzalez will join her sister Cici Gonzalez, a Steinbrenner alum who was a three-time All-Hillsborough team first teamer, at UT in 2014. The older Gonzalez has had a stellar freshman season for the Spartans (10-3-1) scoring 11 goals and adding four assists.
“Getting to play with my sister in college was a big part of my decision,” the younger Gonzalez said. “But the campus is beautiful, I really like (Spartan’s Coach) Gerry (Lucey), the program is one of the best in the country and I know I’ll get a great education at UT.”
Gonzalez said Steinbrenner is holding tryouts this week and will start practice next week for the upcoming season.
