The Daily Sauce — Aug. 8, 2022: FSU Soccer’s Madril to Leave Program, Turn Pro

It’s Monday, Florida State fans.

As you embark on a new week, see what’s in The Daily Sauce.

Lead Story

With the start of the 2022 season less than two weeks away, Florida State soccer will be without a key piece.

Midfielder and defender Emily Madril announced that she would forgo her remaining eligibility and turn pro. Madril battled injuries throughout her career before being named first-team All-ACC and the 2021 ACC Defensive Player of the Year last season.

In a tweet, Madril expressed her displeasure with the way things came to fruition following the resignation of former head coach Mark Krikorian. Krikorian resigned this offseason after leading FSU to its third national championship in eight years. Madril claimed the FSU administration was less than transparent in the process of hiring a successor.

“It was very unfortunate how the situation was handled, and I wish the communication from the leaders in the Athletic Department was more honest and direct,” a portion of the tweet read. “We, as student-athletes, have rights and would have had a valuable voice in this matter, unwavering to the long-term success of this program.”

Madril wished the program success moving forward. FSU is ranked preseason No. 1 and will begin the Brian Pensky era on Aug. 18 at South Carolina. A native of Navarre, Fla., Madril finishes her career with six goals and seven assists.

After missing the 2018 and 2019 seasons to injury, Madril was a second-team All-ACC performer in 2020. This would have been her sixth season with the program.
