USL W-League club Minnesota Aurora FC has signed former collegiate goalkeeper Sarah Fuller, with the team announcing the news on Monday.

Fuller made history when she took the field as a kicker for the Vanderbilt football team in 2020, becoming the first woman to score in a Power 5 football game.

After playing four seasons as a goalkeeper for Vanderbilt, and a season on the football team, Fuller finished her collegiate campaign at North Texas in 2021, playing 17 games and recording eight shutouts as the program’s starting keeper.

The 22-year-old is the first player signed to the pre-professional soccer league team, which will take the field in 2022.

“Sarah is a fantastic player and an even better person,” coach Nicole Lukic said. “Having a leader like Sarah that has broken down barriers is a perfect fit for us.”
