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

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.
