Stephanie Norell and Lauren Hickey here. As two seniors on the women's Soccer team, we will be your eyes and ears to all that is women's soccer here at Eastern.
.Just the thought of it is pretty horrifying. But everyone came in shape and we had a very successful pre-season this year! Fearing the "fun" Beep Test and the "beloved" Mile Run, we women soccer players knew we had our work cut out for us. But we seniors are very happy to report that along with a solid core group of able returners, a swell group of confident freshmen (and one very special sophomore transfer) came to join us this year! Thanks to the famed duo of Coach D and Coach Kenny, our butts are being whipped into shape via P90X and we are moving in a positive direction as a team. It's looking like a great year to repeat as LEC champions!
As the result of a well-fought alumni game this past weekend, as well as two other tough scrimmages, this team is ready to play our first games this weekend at Springfield College. Our first nemesis- Westfield State College.
We hope to come back with two W's and dry clothing!
The support is appreciated!
