BU women's soccer is young but talented on the pitch this season

Posted:
In baseball they are calling this time of year the dog days of summer. For college athletics, this is the beginning of a new season. A time to grow as a team before they take the field in a few weeks.

The women's soccer season starts next Friday as they host St. Bonaventure at the sports complex at 7 pm. The team returns 7 of the 11 starters from last year and they went 7-9-3 in the standings. But even with those key players returning, the Bearcats are still young, having 11 sophomores and 7 freshmen on the roster. In the coaches preseason poll that came out this week, Binghamton was picked to finish 7th in the conference.

"I think it's a rebuilding year for our team. We lost a couple key players but we only lost 4 though. So we have a young team and we are building up so I think we will look to see some of those freshman from last year and sophomores this year to step up in a new role and build our communication on offense, defense, and all over the field," said Junior Defenseman Allison Mack.

"And then our non-conference season is just testing for us to head into conference. Conference is where we want to make a little bit of a better performance and go further than we did last year said," Sarah McClellan, Women's Soccer Head Coach.

The Program has advanced to the postseason 9 of the 11 years in the America East. The women star their schedule with 4 home games before spending a month on the road.
