Women's soccer opens season Wednesday

MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State College women’s soccer team will open the 2009 season campaign Wednesday on the road at Russell Sage College.

The Mustangs return a balanced field of players to the squad this season and look to improve on last season’s performance as they join the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) and enter their first season of NCAA active membership, becoming eligible to compete for post season championship play.

Head coach Chris Perkins added depth to the roster this season and will look to seniors Tifinie-Lyn Cole (Red Creek, NY) and Jessica Yates (North Rose, NY) to anchor the young midfield and defensive lines this season, as both bring a wealth of playing experience to the field.

Following Wednesday’s season opener, Morrisville State will return to the field Sunday, September 6, hosting SUNY Maritime College on Lemery Field.
