While the University of Arizona women’s soccer team is coming off one of the most successful seasons in program history, the team is still striving to “Build A Legacy” with the addition of nine new players to the program. The desire and effort to make Arizona soccer an elite environment was rewarded this past fall by a run to the second round of the NCAA tournament. The team’s dedication to the process and desire to compete on a national level has greatly contributed to the addition of this wonderful group of new players. The 2015 recruiting class includes players from Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada & Washington.  Eight of the additions will be joining the excitement this upcoming 2015 season and one player has already joined the team in Tucson for the 2015 spring semester.
