The College of Saint Scholastica (CSS) women’s soccer team got a taste of scrimmage action this weekend as they hosted Minnesota Morris.
Entering their second season in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC), the Saints completed their preseason with three scrimmages heading into their September 1 opener.
“We face an old foe from the Northland conference in our final. So it will be a great opportunity for our freshmen to gain experience and for our returning players to see where they stand. For us to really put the pieces together so we can start racing when we get to Texas,” said head coach Dave Reyelts.
“Since we play like higher division teams playing a few DIIs. So that coaches have a good idea of who is going to start, who is going to play, who their best players are on the field, who they want, added junior Ellie Keillor.
The Saints finished last year 4-5-2 in the conference.
They open this season with a two-game trip to Texas. Their MIAC opener is set to be on the road at Gustavus Adolphus College on September 14.
“Right now we’re playing as much as we can, getting used to each other’s positions and trying to form that starting 11. It will definitely let us know what we need to work on and what we’re doing well, and who’s going to play. where. So it’s going to be great,” concluded midfielder Alexa Ickert
