BYU Seeking NCAA Women's Soccer Elite

PROVO, UTAH -- The BYU women's soccer team has big plans for a team in only its sixth season. But a team that is returning four of its top five scorers, and adds to that a solid recruiting class, is entitled to big plans.

Team coach Jennifer Rockwood wants her Cougars to reach the Final Four. She is relying on nine returning starters to help lead the way. Two seniors, Sara Reading and Kim Lowe, will provide much of the offensive firepower, combining last season for 29 goals. Joining them will be Aleisha Cramer, national high school player of the year. Cramer is just one of a strong Cougar recruiting class that is expected to bring speed to the team.

The Cougars went 21 - 4 last season. Rockwood hopes to improve on that mark so that they can win a seed in the NCAA tournament. In past years, the Cougars have faced a highly ranked team early in the tournament, with the result that they have reached the Sweet Sixteen only once.

They are optimistic for their chances this year. According to Rockwood, "We have high expectations for this team.... It's the most experienced team we've had."
