Mount St. Mary’s women’s soccer announces 15-player signing class
Emmitsburg, Md. – Mount St. Mary’s women’s soccer head coach Melissa Sherwood has announced her recruiting class for this season.
Sherwood was hired to lead the Mount’s women’s soccer program in January and this is her first recruiting class. This year’s class includes 15 players, comprised of 10 freshmen and five transfers.
“I am excited to welcome this diverse group of young women to the Mount and our women’s soccer program,” said Sherwood. “They offer a range of qualities, all with strong club foundations, including many from ECNL affiliated teams. They possess a nice blend of youth (with 10 freshmen) and experience (with five transfers) which will marry well with the characteristics of our returning roster. Geographically, the majority of the class are from in-state or certainly local to the region which I think is a reflection of the academic and athletic reputation of Mount St. Mary’s in this area. With preseason right around the corner, I am enthused to get everyone on the field and start to build what we are going to represent as Mount St. Mary’s women’s soccer this season!”
Mount St. Mary’s opens the 2022 season at home against Western Carolina on Thursday, August 18, at 7:00 p.m.
