University of Kentucky women’s soccer adds 7 players to roster
LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Kentucky women’s soccer program has added seven players to the roster this fall, including six true freshmen and one graduate transfer, head coach Ian Carry announced.
The newcomers raise the roster total to 26 student-athletes, while the additions represent three countries – Denmark, Iceland and United States – and four states – California, Florida, Maryland and North Carolina.
The fresh faces, which include two goalkeepers, two defenders and three midfielders, bring in more experience than a usual rookie class.
