    First of all, congratulations to the soccer team for a fantastic season and in particular the post season. The wins over DU and BYU got them into the sweet 16 for only the second time in program history.

    Now, looking ahead to next season, CU looks like they will have a transfer from Santa Clara, Morgan Stanton. She's from Lakewood and was rated by Top Drawer Soccer as the #8 midfielder prospect in the nation coming out of HS. She also played for the U-17 national team in the world championships. She was a freshman this season at Santa Clara but she got almost no playing time.

    Also, two CU freshmen, Brie Hooks and Alex Huynh were named to Top Drawer Soccer's Top 100 freshmen this season. Hooks was #74 and Huynh was #86.

    MarkW,

    In W-SOC, do transfers have to sit out a year? It seems like in other non-revenue sports like WVB we've had transfers play immediately.

    Buffs have gotten another transfer - this time it's Madi Hall from Portland. She, like Stanton, is from Lakewood and was a top 100 recruit in 2013.

    Allsome! Portland is a heck of a good soccer program. Love that we were able to bring Madi home.

    According to her U Portland bio, her Dad (Dave Hall) was a pitcher for the Buffs back in the day. http://www.portlandpilots.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=3307&path=wsoc

    Colorado has some of the best girls club soccer in the nation, so it is awesome seeing the girls coming back home to play at CU. If Sanchez can lock down our borders in recruiting, we could be a perennial top-5 team.

    No sit out in Soccer.
    Women's sports are pretty good in Colorado High Schools in general. Basketball, softball, volleyball, soccer, swimming and LAX come to mind.

    But wait, there's more :)

    Waltzing Matilda time again for the Buffs - this time it's Kahlia Hogg who is transferring from Florida State. Hogg has been on the Australian U-17 and U-20 national teams. She got very little playing time this season for FSU (75 minutes) which may be why she coming to Boulder.
