Indiana women's soccer players celebrate Sept. 2, 2021, in Bill Armstrong Stadium after scoring. Shea O’Malley, University of Mississippi transfer, will join the Indiana women’s soccer team next season.



Indiana women’s soccer head coach Erwin van Bennekom announced the addition of Shea O’Malley to the Indiana women’s soccer team Tuesday. O’Malley played her freshman season at the University of Mississippi and has three years of eligibility remaining.

O’Malley was ranked the No. 25 recruit in the nation for the high school graduating class of 2021. She made six starts with the United States U17 Women’s National Team in exhibition games and tournaments during her high school career. 

O’Malley recorded 56 minutes of action at Ole Miss and played both the defender and midfielder positions. 

"We are very excited to welcome Shea to our program," van Bennekom said in an IU release. "She will add technical quality and a high understanding of the game that falls in line with how we want to play. Shea is versatile and will be able to play a variety of positions for us."
