Briar Cliff Women’s Soccer Head Coach Paul Cox has announced his first Charger recruiting class. The first year coach will be welcoming in 23 new players to suit up for him in the Blue & Gold in 2018.
“We are extremely excited to welcome our 2018 class. We have worked hard as a program to reestablish a soccer sized roster moving into the fall and we’ve been able to add strength and depth in every position,” commented Coach Cox. “A big thank you has to go to the returning players who hosted our class on their visits and made them feel welcome to our program. We have three transfers in the group and will be welcoming 20 freshman. We are all excited to get going in August.”
The class can be broken down into their positions with two new goal keepers, five added defenders, 10 midfielders and six forwards will be welcomed in the fall as well. There are three athletes from the tri-state area, while the state with the most representation is California with six players.
Briar Cliff will open the 2018 season on the road August 25 at York College in York, Nebraska. Kickoff between the Chargers and Panthers is slated for 1 p.m. that day.
