The Viking women soccer team will add nine freshmen players this fall. Their already talented roster is adding girls from the Cleveland area, with a few a little further away.

“We are extremely excited to be adding these nine student-athletes to our family,” said Dallas Boyer, head coach of the Cleveland State University women’s soccer team. “One of the best parts about the group is that it’s another step in our goal of creating a program that includes some of the best players from the area.”

Recruits Ja’Maya Ward, Claire Novak, Annie Jackson, Meredith Hansen, Danie Delfino, Aubrey Bechter are all from Northeast Ohio, while Megan Bine (Union, Ky.), Ceirra Crosby (Cincinnati, Ohio), and Helena Novatsidis (Ontario, Canada) are ready to join them here.

“Collectively this group is very diverse in its on-field potential,” Boyer said. “It has players from all positions, players that are able to play multiple positions at a high level, and some players more prepared to contribute now while others may need some more development first.”

With only two players graduating this spring, the Vikings will have most of their team coming back for the fall 2018 season.

“Hopefully, this very deep and very talented roster all continues to get better and make their cases to us on a daily basis for why they should be on the field,” Boyer said. “If so it will give our coaching staff some difficult decisions to make.”

This upcoming freshman class has a background of winning, talent and positivity on and off the field, opening up the team to a variety of line-ups. 

“They give us a lot of options in how we manage the group,” Boyer said. Both in the short term of this upcoming 2018 season and long term over their careers together.”
