After signing day opened on Feb. 1, the Southwest Minnesota State women's soccer team has signed a total of 14 student-athletes to continue their athletic careers for the Mustangs.
"We are very excited about our 2012 recruiting class. Our goal was to bring in a deep class for the next season and we feel like we did that in all positions," SMSU soccer coach TJ Buchholz said in a press release. "While we continued SMSU's strong tradition of getting great soccer players out of the Midwest, we also were able to expand our recruitment with landing several players from Southern California and Colorado. We believe this recruiting class will be a strong part of our foundation for the next four years at SMSU."
The Mustangs finished with a 5-11-1 record last year, including 4-8-1 in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference. The five wins were the most by SMSU since the 2004 season.
