WEST POINT, Ga. – Point University women's soccer head coach Randy Douglas has added defender Halley Wyatt from Harlem High School near Augusta, Ga. to his 2017 squad.  The signing took place at a ceremony at Harlem High School, Thursday, June 1.


"I was impressed with Halley's determination once I learned that she was coming off knee surgery and had trained extremely hard just to be able to play her senior year of high school," said Coach Douglas, "She was cleared in compete in early April and got to play just one month.  She is a strong defender with a good sense of what angles to take defensively.  I know Halley is going to fit in with the team, and I look forward to seeing how hard she pushes herself this summer to get ready for August."


The daughter of Phillip and Joanna Wyatt, Halley graduated from Harlem High School, where she played four seasons of varsity soccer for the Bulldogs and was coached by Kari YadaoWyatt was selected to the All-Area and All Region team as a junior in 2016, and made the All-Region team as a senior.  A two-time Division I Varsity All-Star game selection, Wyatt also received her team's Coach's Awards as a junior and again as a senior and was recognized as her team's best defensive player in 2017.  Harlem High School posted records of 19-2-1 overall and 15-1 in its region.


When asked why she chose Point University as the place where she will continue her academic and soccer careers, Halley said, "From the moment I practiced with the girls at Point, I knew that I couldn't end my soccer career in high school.  It was God's plan for me to commit to Point University.  Now all that's left is to have faith and let the journey begin."


Douglas' Lady Skyhawks posted a 12-5-2 record in 2016, including a 7-1-1 home record and an 8-2 Appalachian Athletic Conference record.  Point tied 1-1 in double overtime with Bryan College in an AAC quarterfinal match and lost the penalty-kick shootout, 5-4.
