This weekend, the women's soccer team here at ETSU clinched a share for the Atlantic Sun regular season title (along with Florida Gulf Coast and Jacksonville). This is a tremendous achievement in it's own right, but especially impressive considering previous seasons and the fact that current head coach Adam Sayers only arrived here in the spring.
The team works extensively with the Center of Excellence. Sport science services are led by Chris MacDonald, with Ryan Alexander, Christian Carter, Mike Israetel, Joel Cowan, & Aaron Casey all assisting. Along with men's soccer, baseball, and volleyball, the women's soccer team is one of the teams that takes most advantage of the support sport science can bring.
The development of the team since the spring has been fantastic to see, and Coach Sayer's is right to point out that it is the "process" that has got them this success. Sport science is part of this process.
Congratulations again to the players and staff - more work lies ahead before the A-Sun tournament, hosted by Florida Gulf Coast in two weekends time. The winner of this will get an automatic berth to the NCAA national tournament.
