WORCESTER, Mass. - Holy Cross head women's soccer coach Deb Flaherty has announced the 2006 incoming class for the Crusaders. Nine student-athletes will join the Holy Cross program for the 2006-2007 academic year.
"I have high expectations for this incoming class," said Flaherty. "It is a great group of athletes that will give us more team speed and add to our game in the air. We are adding to our attacking game with some offensive minded players. This class will give us more depth in all positions, but most of all it gives us versatility with formation and creativity in attack."
The Crusaders will return 10 of their 11 starters from a year ago and will be led by six seniors. Here is a look at this upcoming season's freshman class.
