The Big Ten women’s soccer season kicks off its conference-only schedule this week.
Each team will play 11 games against conference foes, culminating with a four-team Big Ten tournament set to be played from April 15-18 at Grand Park in Westfield, Indiana.

Here is one player from each program to watch in the upcoming spring season.
