Club Queretaro presented Orozco, 23, as their new signing on Monday, August 28. Details of her contract have not been released yet but Orozco has already joined the team in their practices.
As a Sun Devil, Orozco was named the team’s Newcomer of the Year after her freshman season in 2015 and as a sophomore she earned a Pac-12 All-Academic honorable mention recognition.
She was also a key piece of Arizona State’s midfield core her entire junior season. Unfortunately during her senior year, she was sidelined as she had to battle an injury that kept her out of play the majority of the season.
Orozco graduated in 2019 with a major in Health Sciences from Arizona State’s prestigious College of Health Solutions.
Orozco joins Carla Rossi’s, manager of team Queretaro, squad as a critical asset to strengthen their midfield group of players.
Rossi is an experienced coach who also played professional soccer while representing team Mexico from 2004 to 2008 and also played for club Tijuana in 2015. She as well managed the Tijuana football team prior to her move to Queretaro this past offseason.
Liga MX Femenil was started in 2017 and Queretaro has yet to win a league title since the foundation of the league. Rossi and the squad hope that Orozco is the key piece that they need to hoist the sought out league trophy at the end of the season.
“I’m ready to fight until death for the black and blue.” said Orozco in her signing presentation with the club.
