"Primed and Ready"

"Primed and Ready"

With a strong group of upperclassmen returning from the 2018 season and the addition of a talented group of new players, the Wesley Women's Soccer program is primed and ready to compete throughout the 2019 season.  

"We had a quality non-traditional season of training. The hard work and preparation has carried over into preseason camp. The players are truly committed to building a special environment and looking to expand on our the success of last season." said 25-year head coach Ed Muntz.

The team returns 20 players from the 2018 season with the addition of 12 first year players. Five of those returning players received All-Conference recognition.  Senior forward Mackenzie Forsythe was named the Atlantic East Offensive Player of the Year, as well as collecting First-Team accolades in 2018. She led the conference in both points (42) and goals (20) in 2018. Mackenzie holds the Wesley record for most goals (20) scored in a single season and she finished tied for 17th in goals in the NCAA D3.
Juniors Amanda Moccaldi and Allison Backert joined Forsythe on the All-Atlantic East First Team, while juniors Emily Caldarelli and Lauren O'Sullivan earned Second Team honors. Emily Caldarelli holds the Wesley record for most assists (16) in a single season. Those 16 assists put her 1st in the AEC, tied for 4th in NCAA D3 and 2nd in assists per game (1.00) in NCAA D3.
 
"Bringing back such a talented group of student-athletes means everything to the culture we are building. They have created an environment, where our twelve first year players have shown outstanding development and leadership in the early stages."  

The Wolverines will open the season on Friday when they welcome Eastern Shore rival Washington College Shorewomen in non-conference action. That game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. start.
