Getting to Know the Bobcat: Victoria Foster

On Sept. 22, Quinnipiac women’s soccer senior defender Victoria Foster sat down with beat reporters Brandon Murdock and Nick Boyd to talk about her experience at Quinnipiac so far, what led her to come here, and much more.

Foster, a senior transfer from the University of Hartford, comes over after spending two seasons with the Hawks where she was a steady force on the backline, starting in all 30 games that she appeared in. She was also named to the All-New England third team. 

Fast forward to this season, Foster has embraced playing in Hamden and has seen it as a positive experience.

“I’ve really enjoyed it, I feel like it was easy to integrate myself onto the team,” Foster said. “Everyone’s been really welcoming”.

Following Hartford dropping down to the Division III level, a big reason Foster was drawn to Quinnipiac was the competitive nature of the team. 

The Bobcats, the defending MAAC champions, put together a strong non-conference schedule this season as a way to better prepare themselves for stiffer competition as well as getting themselves geared up to defend their MAAC championship. 

Foster feels as though the competition they faced, the biggest one being nationally ranked Princeton, has done just that and has taught the team valuable lessons as they prepare for the end of the season and the conference playoffs.

“Now we know that we can compete with highly ranked teams, we just gotta up our play in the MAAC, and win out,” said Foster.

A big theme for this Quinnipiac team is the Canadian roots this squad has, currently boasting seven players that reside north of the border, and this is something that has played a big factor in Foster’s ability to find comfortability playing in Hamden.

“I actually knew Milena (Branco) before I came here, we played club soccer together,” Foster continued. “She was actually here on my visit, she was the one showing me around, we also played in the summer together”.

When asked about who she felt had some of the biggest personalities on the team, Foster had this to share:

“Milena is very funny,” she continued, “[Morgan Cupo] too, she’s a bundle of joy”.

Foster knows this team has a chance to be special and cannot wait to see how things shake up.

“I’m just looking forward to seeing where things take off this season, it’s looking good,” Foster shared.

Foster, who has one goal on the season and has played every minute of every match besides one so far, will look to continue to play a big role in helping the Bobcats retain their MAAC title, but also take another step in the NCAA tournament.
