Two Long Islanders are among five players set to join the women’s soccer team at St. John’s University.

Nicole Gordon of Amityville and Nicole Multer of Islip will suit up for head coach Ian Stone for the 2020 season. They will be joined by Ava Collins, Amanda Mickwee and Frédérique St-Jean.

Gordon played four years of varsity soccer at St. Anthony’s High School. During her senior season as team captain, she had 19 goals and 14 assists to lead the Friars to the New York State Catholic High School Championship. Gordon will join her sister Samantha as a member of the Red Storm.

Outside of high school, Gordon played her club ball with SUSA FC. This past season she had 15 goals and 14 assists.

Multer joins St. John’s from Islip High School where she was a two-year starter on the varsity team. During her time with the Buccaneers, the team reached the 2017 County Finals before being winning the 2018 County Champions the following season. 

In her most recent season of club ball, Multer helped SUSA’s ECNL team reach the 2019 ECNL Finals.

Collins, Mickwee and St-Jean join St. John’s from various points around the world.

A native of Auckland, New Zealand, Collins is a central midfielder that enjoyed success at the U19 World Cup qualifiers in September scoring six goals for the New Zealand Football Ferns.

She garnered a number of accolades during her soccer career including the St. Cuthbert’s College Sports Honorary Colours Award. The award is presented to a student-athlete who is seen as a strong role model while also displaying characteristics of good sportsmanship and fair play. 

Mickwee hails from Redwood City, Calif., where she was a two-year varsity player at Saint Francis High School. The defender helped her team to the Central Coast Section (CCS) Division II Championships in 2018-19. Mickwee was also a two-time scholar-athlete, earning a spot on the honor roll all four years.

She is the starting defender for Mountain View Los Altos SC ECNL team. Mickwee helped her club team reach the ECNL National Playoffs in back-to-back years, one of just 16 teams to qualify based on point total.

Rounding out the Class of 2020 is St-Jean, a native of Saint-Bruno in Quebec, Canada. She is a two-time Division I RSEQ All-Star Team selection, as well as a Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Championship (CCAA) All-Star Team honoree.
