Lyon (formerly Jermier) was an outside midfielder in youth soccer, and helped lead her U18 team to the first and only youth national championship ever won by a Wisconsin youth team, boys or girls, in 2011. After overcoming a broken leg and then an ACL injury in her first two years of college, Jermier went on to become one of the most decorated players in Marquette history.
Jacie earned three straight BIG EAST All-Academic team honors (2012-13, 2013-14, and 2014-15), as well as 2014 ALL-BIG EAST Second team honors and 2014 BIG EAST All-Tournament Team in her junior year. During the summer before her senior year she claimed her second national championship, leading the Chicago Red Star Reserves to the 2015 WPSL National Championship. In her senior year at Marquette, she claimed 2015 ALL-BIG EAST First Team honors and was a 2015 Senior CLASS Award Candidate – one of 30 women’s players across the country recognized for loyalty, achievement, and leadership. A two-year captain at Marquette, Lyon started every game in her final two seasons in the program.
Jacie graduated in 2015 with a BA in Biomedical Sciences, providing her great knowledge and insight on the physical demands of the game and on proper training methodology to maximize athletic performance while reducing injury risk.
