Coach’s Comments on upcoming season: “This is a new year with a very new team. It is not that we are rebuilding but just refueling. As a team, we have a lot of new faces but with that we have a lot of unanswered questions. Our recruiting class has a lot of upside to it, such as athleticism and soccer intelligence but are very young. Fans should be in for a treat and teams might not pay much attention to us because of who we’ve graduated but that works to our benefit. We came into preseason after having a great spring season winning some matches that showed even us (the coaching staff) what we can be capable of. The biggest thing for me is how we much cohesion we will have with so many new faces. Our upperclassmen will be expected to show our underclassmen the way we do things here at CSU and what we are about. How the new girls understand and take note to the old girls and vice versa will ultimately dictate how our season will turn out. We are definitely expecting a good year and expect good things everyone. I am excited to see what all we can accomplish.”
