Currently ranked second in the PSAC West and eighth in the Atlantic Region from the United Soccer Coaches NCAA DII women’s soccer poll, the Golden Knights are on their way to a hopeful season.  

After a successful 2021-22 season and making it to the first round of the NCAA tournament, the Golden Knights are on track for another appearance in the tournament for the second year in a row.  

Standout returners and new players are pushing the team to more success. Leah Bermudez, captain, said.  

“We have a lot of depth on our team this year,” Bermudez said. “The raw talent and athletic ability can make this year’s team the best we have seen in a while.”  

Some of these players include Sarah Fails, senior, and Ella Fadale, first-year, who topped the scoreboards with three goals each during their latest game against the Seton Hill Griffins.  

Other key players like Gretchen Oslick, junior and returning starter on the defense, and Sam Dales, senior who returned after three knee injuries, strengthen the Knights’ offense.  

The battle against the Seton Hill Griffins resulted in a tie bringing the Knights’ current record as of Sept. 16 to 4-1-2 overall. Next for the Lady Knights will be a match with the California University Vulcans.  

The Lady Knights will soon be underway into the second half of their conference play fighting for a PSAC ring, regional championship, and the NCAA.
