LOUDONVILLE, NY – Siena Women’s Soccer Head Coach Steve Karbowski has announced the appointment of red-shirt junior back Sophia Dimkopoulos and senior midfielder Deanna Lomino to serve as the team’s captains this year.
“Sophia and Dee have been great leaders for our program,” said Karbowski. “They both contribute in many ways on and off the field. They are well respected by their teammates, always put the team first, and work year around to have themselves prepared for the team. Sophia is a steady and consistent performer defensively. Dee has the versatility to play anywhere across the midfield, and is always 90 minutes fit. Their leadership, commitment, and character will be valuable to the team’s success during a very uncertain time.”
A native of Fayetteville, New York, Dimkopoulos has appeared in 38 matches including 21 starts over parts of three seasons. Last fall, she started all 19 matches at outside back for the Saints.
