BETHLEHEM, Pa. --- The Moravian College women's soccer team is set to begin its 2018 season on August 31 on the road.
Fifth-year Head Coach Jeff Ykoruk has 23 letterwinners back from last year's 9-6-1 squad that allowed just six goals on the season. Leading the group of returnees are seniors defender Paige Kovacs, forwards Shae Duka and Gabby Stelzmiller and midfielder Aimee Manley. Duka has been named to the Landmark All-Conference Second Team in each of the last two falls while Stelzmiller was a First Team selection in 2016. Also returning for the Greyhounds are junior defender Paige Weiss, the 2016 Landmark Conference Rookie of the Year, and sophomore defender Sara Cassel, the 2017 Landmark Conference Co-Rookie of the Year.
Coach Ykoruk, Kovacs and Duka give their thoughts on the 2018 season in a preview video below.
Moravian's first contest is scheduled for Friday, August 31 when the Hounds play at Cortland State (N.Y.) University in a 7:00 p.m. non-conference match.
