Husson Women's Soccer 2014 Recruits

Bangor, ME - Husson women's soccer is proud to announce its 2014 recruiting class. The 2014 first year class features a talented group from across the region, hailing from Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Rhode Island.

These newcomers will join a talented group of returners coming off a successful 2013 campaign that saw Husson make a North Atlantic Conference semifinal appearance. Three players received All-Conference and All-Tournament recognition, another three players made the 2013 NSCAA College Division Women's Scholar All-East Region Team, and the team received both a Team Academic Award and a Gold Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award from the NSCAA.

 

Head women's soccer coach Carly Gettler said of the incoming class, "Husson women's soccer is so excited about this group of players. They have had incredible high school and club careers, and I'm ready to see what they'll do as Eagles. We were a young team this year, and I have full confidence that this group will come in prepared and add to the strong foundation that we have built over the course of the previous two seasons."
