AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn soccer and head coach Karen Hoppa have announced the program’s 2023 signing class, which consists of five student-athletes who are set to lace up for the Orange & Blue next fall.
“We are really excited to announce our 2023 signees,” Tigers head coach Karen Hoppa said. “This class gives us depth and quality in all three lines. They are already Auburn women, and we cannot wait to see what they will accomplish on and off the field during their four years.”
