It’s Woman Crush Wednesday, which means it’s time to take a look at the college sports world and appreciate some of the standout athletes across the nation. Every week, we feature an athlete that stands out among their peers. This week, we feature Ally Watt, who just wrapped up her junior season with the Texas A&M soccer team.
Watt, who participated in the 2016 FIFA U20 World Cup for the United States, led the Aggies in points and goals during the 2017 season which Texas A&M finished with an 18-2-2 record and the No. 7 ranking in the nation. She was named a First Team All-SEC honoree and honored as a member of the SEC All-Tournament Team after tying a school record with a four-goal performance in the quarterfinals.
As a member of the U-20 USA women’s national team in the World Cup, Watt was forced to redshirt her sophomore year. The United States ultimately lost to South Korea in the third-place match, but Watt did appear in five matches and earned FIFA Player of the Match in the United States’ win over Mexico.
Watt committed to Texas A&M after being a standout in soccer and track and field at Pine Creek High School in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In track, Watt won state titles in both the 100 Meter and 200 Meter at the 2012 and 2014 Colorado Class 5A Track & Field Championship.
