WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT BELLA HARTLEY...
"Bella brings a lot of qualities to the table. She can out-run you. She can beat you on the dribble. She can outmuscle you. And she won't think twice about running you over. Plus she's a natural goal-scorer who has a knack for scoring big goals in critical moments. Bella is impossible to miss on a soccer field. She has this bull-in-a-china-shop mentality. When she gets the ball at her feet, the game takes on a sense of urgency - you can feel that something dangerous is about to happen. She's the player who says, 'Give me the ball because we need a goal and I'm going to score it.'"
-Georgia Head Coach Steve Holeman
"Bella Hartley is first and foremost a competitor who knows how to win. It doesn't matter the game, the conditions or the odds, her team wins. She brings a dynamic blend of athleticism, desire and strength to the game of soccer. She wears her passion proudly and will become a fan favorite during games. She is extremely versatile and I am excited to see where she makes her impact at Georgia and expect to hear great things from her moving forward."
