MSU soccer finalizes signing class

Minot State women’s head soccer coach Chris Clements announced the addition of 13 members to the Beaver Soccer program on Tuesday, completing the 2019 recruiting class. They will join 14 returners for the upcoming season. The new additions added over the summer represent three different states, California, Colorado and Wisconsin, and four countries including England, Italy, Ireland and Germany.

“I am very excited to see what this 2019 recruiting class will be able to achieve,” Clements said. “I feel that over the space of a few months we have signed very talented players that will help fill the void left by an accomplished group of seniors. I am sure there will be challenges but this class combined with our returners will help us compete in the conference this season.”

The Beavers 2019 season features nine home matches, with the season opener on Friday, September 13, against Ferris State.
