Racing Louisville and goalkeeper Olivia Sekany agreed to a new contract, the club announced Friday.
Sekany signed a one-year deal through the 2024 campaign.
“We are excited for Liv to re-sign with the club,” said Racing coach Bev Yanez. “She brings a lot to our environment in several aspects.”
“I am excited that Olivia has re-signed with the club,” said Sergio Gonzalez, Racing’s goalkeepers coach. “Her development during the 2023 season has shown how valuable Olivia is in our environment. Not only is Olivia a tremendous goalkeeper, but she’s exactly the type of person we want here at Racing. She’s an unbelievable teammate and is constantly making the others around her better. I’m very excited to see what the future holds here for Olivia.”
“I am so excited and grateful to be back with Racing for another season,” Sekany said. “The energy of this group is unmatched – from the front office to the coaching staff to the players, we’re all hungry to compete and take this team to new heights. It feels like we’re building something really special, and I can’t wait to see what this season has in store for us. Go Big Purp!”
Sekany, a University of Washington grad, spent last season as a reserve goalkeeper for Racing after signing her first professional contract.
The California native led Washington to the Sweet 16 in the rescheduled 2020 NCAA Tournament and holds the Huskies’ record for the lowest goals-against average (0.62) in program history, ahead of U.S. Women’s National Team legend Hope Solo.
