Amber Yarbrough Commits to Grand Canyon University
Amber Yarbough commits to Grand Canyon University
Four teams, two cities and now, Amber Yarbrough is taking her game to Grand Canyon University.
Amber was an “out-of-town” player for the Cyclones which takes real commitment: every game is an “away” game, as were the blitz practice weekends. A resident of the Kansas City area, Amber began playing hockey when she was 8 years old. She played for the Kansas City Stars as well as the Kansas City Storm. She played for the St. Louis Lady Blues prior to joining the Lady Cyclones. Amber fit right in and quickly became an integral part of the team in her junior and senior years. A prolific goal scorer Amber could make things happen. Whenever Amber was in town it was going to be a fun weekend both on and off the ice. Amber kept things lively. Ambers coach Gary Tittel had this to say about Amber “... her ability to create odd man rushs when breaking out of the the defensive zone, will transition well to the collegiate level. I'm really excited to she what she can do over the next four years.”
Amber’s parent’s, John and Ruthann Yarbrough say that the two years with the Cyclones were the best years of hockey for Amber and that she made great friends, two of which will be her teammates at GCU.
Amber will begin her studies in engineering this fall.
The Cyclones wish Amber all the best and are happy we got know her and her family.
Hope to see you at the alumni game… and GO LOPES!
