South Dakota State women’s soccer adds transfer goalkeeper

The South Dakota State soccer team has fortified its goalkeeper depth as the Jackrabbits have received paperwork from Mia Wildeman, most recently a student-athlete at Nebraska, who will join the program for the upcoming 2023 season. 
Wildeman has spent the past two years collegiately in Lincoln. A native of San Antonio, Texas, Wildeman will be a sophomore in eligibility this fall. 
“We are excited for Mia to join our Jackrabbit Soccer Family,” South Dakota State head coach Brock Thompson said. “Mia is an excellent shot stopper with great distribution range. Most importantly, she is excited to be a Jackrabbit. We’re looking forward to having her join our program this fall.”
Wildeman was a standout for James Madison High School in San Antonio, Texas, during her prep career prior to her arrival at Nebraska. She earned back-to-back District Goalkeeper MVP awards to close out her tenure for the Mavericks. Madison High captured 20-1 and 14-4-5 records her last two seasons minding the net, including a Class 6A District title as a junior. The 2020 season saw her total 64 saves while allowing just five goals. She was a four-time all-district choice and a team captain as a senior. In the classroom, Wildeman earned academic all-district honors and was a member of National Honor Society.
Wildeman has also been heavily involved in club and semi-professional soccer. Her club soccer tenure ended by earning a State Cup championship with Lions FC Soccer Club while serving as a captain in 2020. She was the club’s Most Improved Player in 2019 after participating on the Lonestar Soccer Club previously. 
Wildeman has played four years of semi-professional soccer, spending a year in the UPSL for Alamo Soccer Club and is currently in her third season in the UWS for the San Antonio Athenians. She has claimed two Conference Goalkeeper of the Year awards with the Athenians while helping the team advance to Final Four appearances in back-to-back seasons. In 2021 and 2022 she was named Third and Second Team All-UWS, respectively. Wildeman has earned six UWS Player of the Match honors and notched double-digit save marks in matchups against professional clubs in Club America Femenil and Houston Dash. 
The incoming SDSU goalkeeper is an engineering major. Wildeman’s father, Paul, was a letterwinner for the Jackrabbit football team from 1987-91. Her older sister, Bella, has been a member of the Jackrabbits’ cheer team as part of the SDSU Spirit Squad.
