“I am very excited about all five players joining the team this Spring,” said CSU Bakersfield Head Coach Sebastian Vecchio. “Once again, we were able to attract quality talent to our program, but more importantly, quality people!”

Vecchio stated the following on the signing of three transfers: “Morgan, Stevie, and Mariah are eager to get on the field and make an impact just the way Penny SmithHollee Hercik, and Anela Nigito did last Spring when they arrived in Bakersfield.”

Vecchio added more praise for the program’s pair of freshmen recruits: “Selena and Rehgan are two very promising players that graduated high school early to be here in the Spring Semester.
