Women's Soccer Announces Incoming Class of 2018

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Brown women's soccer head coach Phil Pincince has announced the seven members of the incoming class of 2018 to join the Bears this fall.


Three of the newest members hail from California, with Oklahoma, Arizona, Massachusetts, and Oregon also represented in the class of 2018.


"With eight seniors graduating this spring, there was a need to bring in a strong recruiting class, and we certainly did.  The 2018 class will continue to add to an already athletic, fast, strong, and technical team.  I am excited about this class competing, challenging and making our 2014 team move forward to compete for an Ivy Championship and an invitation to the NCAA Tournament," said Pincince.
