UNC Greensboro women’s soccer team adds three incoming freshmen

GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNC Greensboro women’s soccer completed another successful Signing Day, with Chloe Lausell (West Florida Flames), Rachel Poplin (Charlotte SA) and Ally Hackett (Charlotte SA) all committing to play for the Spartans in the fall of 2021.

Poplin and Hackett both arrive as homegrown products, coming by way of Winston-Salem and Charlotte respectively while playing together at Charlotte Soccer Academy. The Spartans potentially shore up their backline for seasons to come with Hackett and Lausell both playing primarily at the center back position in previous years, with Poplin providing immediate depth for UNCG in the middle of the field.

“We are delighted with this class,” says head coach Michael Coll. “We’ve focused on positions which we felt needed increased depth and competition. These three are fantastic additions to the strong team that we already have. They are all good students, elite players and their personalities will match perfectly with the current team.”
