Statham Names Seven to Class of 2013
Feb. 17, 2009
EASTON, Pa. - Head coach Mick Statham has announced an incoming class of seven commitments that are set to join the Lafayette women's soccer program in August. The class hails from five states and is comprised of two goalkeepers, two defenders, two midfielders and one forward.
Statham is excited for his latest additions to not only join the program, but also the Lafayette community later this summer.
"I am really happy with our class," Statham said. "It is very exciting for me as a coach to know we have these fantastic young women to add to the great student athletes we already have. All of the class adds quality to the needs we have as a team. Not only will they give our program a boost from a soccer stand point, but they will have a positive impact on the Lafayette community. They are all very self-motivated and ambitious and the whole team is looking forward to their arrival on College Hill in August."
