NEXT WEEK: USF will host two matches on the Hilltop next week as it wraps up the month of August. The Dons will play host to Northern Florida Friday, Aug. 27 before welcoming UC Santa Barbara Sunday, Aug. 29. DONS IMPROVE GREATLY IN 2009: According to Sopis Sports – a sports information company that covers collegiate sports, the USF women’s soccer program was one of the most improved Division I women’s soccer programs in 2009. USF finished 23rd in the ranking, with a 1.08 improvement rating. San Francisco posted a 5-13-2 record in 2008, before improving to 7-7-5 in 2009. USF WELCOMES IMPRESSIVE RECRUITING CLASS: The Dons welcome 10 newcomers to the Hilltop this season. The class begin their USF careers as one of the most highly touted recruiting classes in program history. The group includes two international students and five that hail from the state of California. MARIS, ROBERTS, O’BRIEN RETURN FOR FINAL HURRAH: San Francisco welcomes back three seniors in 2010 – Lauren Maris, Afyia Roberts and Ashley O’Brien. Maris, a midfielder, has appeared in all 57 matches of her collegiate career and enters the season as the Dons’ top returning scorer from a year ago. For her career, she has amassed five goals and three assists for 13 total points. Roberts transferred to USF from UC Davis in 2008 as a sophomore. Since her arrival, she has started 39 matches and helped the defense record eight shutouts. O’Brien joined the Dons a year ago from UConn. As a junior, she made an immediate impact earning All-Region second team honors. She was also tabbed with West Coast Conference Honorable Mention honors. 25th ANNIVERSARY OF WOMEN’S SOCCER: The 2010 season marks the 25th Anniversary of women’s soccer on the Hilltop. In 1985, Erik Visser became the first head coach of the program, recruiting essentially a team of walk-ons. Since the programs founding, Visser has moved on to become the head coach of the men’s program and the women’s soccer program has amassed a 170-254-32 all-time record. The 1985 team is pictured below.

SCOUTING THE SPARTANS: San Jose State enters the 2010 season looking to continue its success from a year ago. Last season, the Spartans won the regular season Western Athletic Conference championship with a 11-6-3 overall record. Sophomore defender Jessica Ingram, who was recently selected as the 2010 Preseason WAC Defender of the Year, leads the Spartans as they look to defend their conference title. San Jose State is coached by Jeff Leightman, who is in his third year at SJSU, was named the WAC Coach of the Year in 2009. VETERANS LOOK TO HOLD ON, FILL VOID: The San Francisco offense will be missing a big component from 2009, but still has its self planted for the upcoming season. Missing from the line-up will be last year’s leading scorer, Kristina Hall, but on the upside, a majority of the Dons’ offensive efforts will return to the pitch. The 15 veterans on the USF roster accounted for 14 of the Dons’ 24 goals last season and 42 of the total 64 points. DONS FACE TOUGH CHALLENGE AHEAD: Ten home matches and seven NCAA postseason teams highlight the Dons’ 2010 slate. San Francisco will spilt the season evenly between Negoesco Stadium and the road, playing 10 as the home team and 10 as the visitors. Despite the even schedule, USF will not spend a night away from home until they head to the State of Arizona the first weekend of October. Included in the schedule are seven contests against teams that advanced to the postseason last year, including West Coast Conference Champion Portland. In 2009, the perennial powerhouse Pilots advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championship. FORMER DON NAMED TO HAITIAN NATIONAL TEAM: Former Don Samantha Brand, who graduated from USF in May, has been named to the Haitian National Women’s Soccer Team. Brand, whose grandparents were born in Haiti, played for the Dons from 2006 to 2009. Brand joins Fiona O’Sullivan (2004-07) as a former San Francisco standout currently playing for a National Team. O’ Sullivan currently plays for her native Ireland. CARR BEGINS FOURTH YEAR ON THE HILLTOP: Head coach Mark Carr is entering his fourth year at the helm of the Dons. Last season, Carr led USF to an eight-match unbeaten streak en route to its 7-7-5 final record. Under his guidance, the Dons have landed six All-WCC honorees, two All-Region selections, three WCC All-Academic nods and one USF Class Valedictorian. DONS LAND TWO 2009 ALL-REGION ACCOLADES: Former Don Kristina Hall and 2010 senior Ashley O’Brien were named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) AllWest Region Second Team last season. Hall led the Dons with four goals, one assist for nine total points last year. O’Brien, who transferred to USF from Connecticut, added a goal and two assists last season for the Green and Gold. The duo was the first Dons to be named to an All-Region Team since Annika Schmidt in 2001.

TWO NORWEGIANS ARRIVE ON THE HILLTOP: Christina Moberg and Hanna Haanes, both natives of Norway, will begin their collegiate careers at USF Friday. Hannes comes to San Francisco with a plethora of international experience under her belt. The freshman has competed for the U16, U17, U19, U20 and U23 Norwegian National Teams.
