Something very positive seems to be brewing for women's soccer too! EJ has been working his magic since last spring! First scrimmage tomorrow against Valpo! The last coach seemed to over emphasize offense, this team is built around good defense and advantageous offense. There will be a lot of low scoring games! Look for definite improvement! ;) jc

The women's soccer team ended their season 4-11-2 overall, 2-51- conference. They only have 1 senior and seemed to be close in many matches, so maybe things will turn next year.
