“We are all excited to have Morgan join our staff this season,” Meiburger said. “Morgan comes from a great soccer pedigree, having played at the highest youth and college levels throughout her career. She is a true professional and student of the game, as she is always looking for ways to improve herself.
“I am very much looking forward to working with Morgan and I know she will be a major contributor to our program as we continue to push toward excellence.”
“I am extremely excited and thankful to have been given the opportunity to join the women’s soccer coaching staff at Loyola,” Ruhl said. “I look forward to working with the team and learning from the wealth of knowledge that my fellow coaches provide.”
Ruhl, considered one of the nation’s premier goalkeeper recruits coming out of high school, returns to Maryland after playing three years for LSU’s women’s soccer program. The Monkton, Maryland, native was a four-star recruit who earned all-conference, all-metro and all-state honors at The McDonogh School. She also played at the highest level of youth soccer in the United States, as she helped guide the McLean Strikers to the Virginia State Cup and Region 1 Regional Championships, in addition to a runner-up finish at the 2010 National Championships.
A four-year player in the Maryland Olympic Development Team, Ruhl was also an ADIDAS ESP selection for the All-Star Team and a Golden Glove recipient.
While in college, Ruhl served as a youth coach for the Baton Rouge Soccer Club and was a goalkeeper coach for Capital City United Youth Club. She was also the Academy One Goalkeeping Director and an undergraduate goalkeeper coach at LSU for the women’s soccer team as a senior in 2015.
Ruhl graduated from LSU with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in special education in 2016.
