This group of players may be our most athletic we have ever had in one class,'' said BC head coach Alison Foley, who is entering her 20th season at BC. "Many of them have been committed for quite some time, so they are a close-knit group that understands the standard of excellence the BC soccer program and our alumni expect.  The majority of them have national team experience which will help them with their transition into the ACC.  We are looking forward to them making an immediate impact both on the field and in the classroom.''
