University of Louisville women's soccer coach Karen Ferguson-Dayes announced on Thursday the Cardinals' 2013 recruiting class, which includes six newcomers for the upcoming season.
“I’m very pleased to announce the 2013 class for our program as they all possess a similar quality in that they are all fiercely determined to be successful students and soccer players,” said Ferguson-Dayes. “This class has the talent to immediately make an impact on the college game and help us in our last year in the BIG EAST and ultimately in our transition in to the ACC. Every one of these young women has the ability to see playing time immediately and to help us continue in our quest for a BIG EAST Championship and an NCAA College Cup berth.”
