QUEENS, N.Y. – St. John’s University women’s head coach Ian Stone Friday announced the addition of two student-athletes who will join the Johnnies for the fall 2021 season.
Lauryn Tran joins the Johnnies from Alberta, Canada, where she played soccer at Rundle College High School. In 2016 and 2017, Tran was selected to join the Alberta Provincial soccer team, the highest level of amateur soccer in Alberta.
On the club circuit, Tran has played for the Calgary Blizzard since 2013. Most recently, Tran and the Blizzard were named 2020 City Champions. During her tenure with the Calgary Blizzard, Tran has helped her team to a trio of City Championships (2016, 2017 and 2020).
The 5-2 midfielder brings a strong athletic ability to the Red Storm program, as she was a three-sport athlete at Rundle College. She also ran cross country and played basketball. Following her freshman season with the Cobras, Tran was named her team’s basketball MVP. That same year, Tran helped her the cross country program win the City Championship.
Tran also excelled in the classroom over her high school career, as she earned Honor Roll distinction four years at Rundle College.
Megan Sical joins the Johnnies following a successful 2020 season as the starting goalkeeper for Port Chester High School in Port Chester, N.Y. In her most recent campaign with the Lady Rams, Sical helped her team to an undefeated season that saw Port Chester capture the All-League Championship. She was named the 2020 Section One All-League player of the year.
Sical also played 10 seasons with the New York Soccer Club. In 2017, she helped her team to the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association State Cup Championship. After one year of playing for the Port Chester Soccer Club in 2015, Sical was named the Most Valuable Player.
