The 2013 squad graduated 10 seniors, making way for a 13-member rookie class this fall. Add in three junior transfers and six redshirt freshmen and this year's Lions have a whole new feel.
"It's exciting with all these new players and new expectations, and it's also a little bit of a challenge," said third year Head Coach Michelle Myers.
Redshirt senior defender Jenni Benger, senior midfielder Brianne Medved, junior midfielder Jocelyn Blankenship and sophomore goalkeeper Sophia Leksan provide a core nucleus of returning players to lead the way for the Lions.
"The key for this weekend is coming away with two wins, coming out healthy and playing some pretty soccer," said Myers."
