After an outstanding career in the Orange and Blue, GK Kaylan Marckese got to hear her name called in the 2019 NWSL College Draft.

Marckese was selected with the first pick of the fourth round and is one of only 36 athletes selected in this year’s draft.

In 78 games for Florida over the last four seasons, Marckese has allowed an average of less than one goal per game (0.94). Marckese also set the program’s all-time shutouts mark, finishing with 39.

Marckese will continue her career with Sky Blue FC who compete in Piscataway, New Jersey.

Gators fans will have an opportunity to see Marckese without travelling too far. The Orlando Pride also play in the NWSL less than two hours down the turnpike.
