Women’s soccer aiming to build momentum going into new season

 With fall sports in full swing, Western Carolina’s Women’s soccer team is working to build momentum. With a record of 1-2-4, the Catamounts have defeated UNC Asheville.  

The matches against Southern Conference teams will start Sept. 23, 2022, with the Catamounts hosting Wofford College at 7 p.m.  

The Catamounts recently returned from Ohio, with new career records being set. Freshman goalkeeper Leanne Trudel increased her career-high saves by making seven saves in one match. Records are even breaking back home in Cullowhee! The Catamounts hosted Clemson University in August, with a record-breaking crowd of 1,212 attendees.  

Riley Terry, a senior midfielder/defender, has high hopes for the rest of the season as the Catamounts go into conference play. 

“We are really excited to start conference. The beginning of our season hasn’t gone as planned but I believe in our team, and we all know that we have what it takes to bring a conference championship home to WCU. We look forward to seeing other students and student athletes at our games the rest of the fall,” Terry told The Carolinian. 

 With high hopes for the rest of the season, the Catamounts encourage anyone and everyone to attend a game with their Western Carolina pride!
