The Coker Cobras women's soccer team will begin play tonight with not only a group of fresh faces on the pitch, but three new faces roaming the sidelines.
Dan Muns will lead the women's soccer team this season after serving as an assistant at Columbus State University (GA) since the program's birth in 2004. Columbus State became a regionally and nationally ranked program during Muns' tenure. Muns will be assisted by Jackie DeNova and Garrett Vaughan.
Muns is very excited to get the season underway. "The ladies have a terrific work ethic and have embraced our focus on competition and accountability," Muns said, "we have been preparing for the regular season one day at a time."
The new Cobra women's team includes eight new players, six of which are freshmen. "With a new coach there are changes in the philosophy," freshmen keeper Lizz Morris said, "a lot of new players have come on board, and we are looking to change the face of this program ."
Junior Sarah Rountree echoed this thought saying, "There is a different type of atmosphere on the field. There is a lot of team chemistry, we work well together."
Overall, the feel on campus is breathing excitement and energy into the program. New players and returners alike look to make an impact on the pitch when their season kicks off against USC Aiken. "We have a whole new attitude towards this season. We are all very excited," said junior Morgan Hartline.
The bar has been raised for the club this year. With a new coaching staff and plenty of new faces, eyes will be upon the team as they begin their season tonight at 7 p.m. against the USC Aiken Pacers.
