Ruth is one of several freshman that has brought great stability and strength to the midfield this season. Before coming to Covenant, Ruth played club soccer with the Birmingham Lady Ambassadors '93 and Birmingham United Soccer Association (BUSA) '94 ECNL teams. She helped her teams to a Division I State Final Four spot in 2009 and 2010; and a Division II State Championship in 2010. Ruth was also part of the 2008 and 2009 State ODP team.
Her parents are Jim and Darcy Terry. She has four older siblings; in order from oldest to youngest: Rachel, Esther, Paul, and Rachel (gymnast for the University of Alabama). When she is not playing soccer, Ruth enjoys talking with people, thinking, and playing the guitar and piano. On of her favorite Bible passages is 2 Peter 2:9-10.
Ruth is double majoring in Community Development and Spanish. After college, she plans to go to graduate school, but say she "would ultimately love to live outside the U.S. speaking a different language and proclaiming God's excellencies wherever I am."
