The Penn State Women’s Soccer Team begins their 2009 campaign as the preseason favorite among Big Ten Coaches. The team was also ranked by Adidas at #12 nationally. The team headed by U-20 World Cup Champion Goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher will try to reach a 14th consecutive NCAA bid this year and will rally around forward Katie Shoepfer’s scoring prowess.

The team will be hunted by Michigan State and Illinois who have Big Ten Championship hopes themselves and the Ladies of Happy Valley will need all the support they can get.

Women’s Soccer kicks off at home with an exhibition against the much hated team from Pitt (What is there to like about that school?! Really?!). The game starts at 4pm on Saturday.

Regular season play starts on August 21st at 7pm in Happy Valley against Virginia.
