Morrisville State women’s soccer gearing up for 2012 season

MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State College women’s soccer team brings a young, but excited squad into the 2012 season.

After losing their top goal scorer and North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) All-Conference team selection, Erin Rundle to graduation, sixth year head coach Chris Perkins is looking to a mixture of returners and newcomers to add their names to the points list this season.

With only six starters returning from last years’ squad, including their entire midfield crew and sophomore goalkeeper Jennifer Zidzik (Lambertville, N.J.), the remainder of the squad will be fighting it out for the remaining starting positions. 

“We have more depth this year than ever before with more players able to play multiple positions. Much will depend on how well the newcomers mesh with the returning players,” said Perkins.

Hoping to help mold and lead the team to its best season yet are team captains, senior midfielder Gabriella Gallart (Montgomery Village, M.D.) and junior Jordan Nadeau (Cobleskill, N.Y.).

The Mustangs open their season against non- conference opponent SUNY Canton on Saturday, September 1 at 2 p.m. in Canton. Their home opener is schedule for Saturday, September 15th at 1 p.m. against SUNY IT on Drake Field in Morrisville.
