COACH'S COMMENTS: "Lindsay spent a good part of the fall dealing with an injury, and she was out all spring with the same injury. I think the time off the field has reinvigorated her drive as a soccer player and we are excited to get her back on the field. She is technically very clean and has played a variety of positions throughout her career; we are excited to see where she can help the team the most this fall."
