Future UNT Soccer Player Ager Wants To Travel The World

Round Rock girls soccer finished the 2019 season as a UIL 6A Region II semifinalist, but it wouldn’t have reached that stage without senior midfielder Hannah Ager.

“My favorite moment during my time at Round Rock was definitely scoring the game winner in the last 52 seconds of the second overtime in round one of [this year’s] playoffs [against Tomball Memorial],” said Ager. “In the moment, I did not even realize what I was doing. It all happened so fast. After the ball went in, I was so shocked and I didn’t even really celebrate. I just turned to Sydnie [Myers] with my mouth wide open, and everyone came and tackled me. I will remember that moment forever.”

Plays like that earned Ager two important honors: first-team all-state and VYPE Austin Public School Girls Soccer Player of the Year. The latter followed 18,635 of the 63,704 total votes on the end of the year poll.

“It feels awesome to have that much support,” she said. “I’m so lucky that my friends and family support me with everything I do.”

“I definitely credit my success to my teammates [as well],” she added. “We have grown so much closer this past year and it made us stronger on the field. I couldn’t have accomplished anything without them, whether it be a pass, communication on what to do, or them screaming tips and support at me.”

Ager’s strong finish to her high school career should result in more success at the University of North Texas.

“I actually decided to go there before I decided to play soccer,” she said. “When I visited, I really loved the campus and it felt like home to me. My aunt also lives 30 minutes away from Denton, so I can go and see her as well.”

“What excites me about North Texas is just the opportunity to play in college,” she continued. “I never would have thought I would be playing at such a big school [and] for such a successful Division I program. I am excited to push myself to my limits and be a part of the Mean Green program.”

Ager’s high school may be 205 miles from her soon-to-be university, but her move from Central to North Texas will give her more opportunities to explore.

“I love getting to see new places,” she said. “I have a map in my room that I scratch off with each new state or country I have been to. My goal is to have [it] more colorful in the future.”
