WACO (August 22, 2013) -- How do you follow up the best year in baylor soccer history? We're about to find out.
"You always leave a year like last year and you remember what made you so good and it's not so much remembering the results of the games, but what it took to be so good," said co-head coach Marci Jobson.
"Last year, Marci always made a joke, she was like, hey we can just get back on the bus if you all are too scared," said defender Taylor Heatherly. "This year it's like, okay, there's no, we've been on that elite level and we're at that elite level and we're going to stay there. So I think that is what it really taught us. If we bring our game we can play with anybody, if we don't bring our game we can lose to anybody."
The defense will be the strength of the team. Only one starter is gone from the back line. Offense will be a huge question mark. Baylor lost its three top goal scorers to graduation.
"We have a lot of defensive returners that I think will solidify us defensively. And then I'm excited to see what's going to happen with our attack and who is going to step up," said Jobson. "There's a lot of opportunity there, and whenever there is opportunity somebody will rise to it."
"Losing Dana and Lisa is tough for us, but I think a lot of new players are ready to step up and fill that role and do what they have to do," said forward Bri Campos.
"I think it just shows an opportunity for people to step up, said midfielder Kat Ludlow. "I think that, yes we lost powerhouses all over the field and we lost goal scorers but that just gives the opportunity to other girls to step up and fill those shoes."
