College soccer

Hens sign eight recruits: New University of Delaware women’s soccer coach Mike Barroqueiro announced the addition of eight high school recruits on Tuesday.

The recruiting class includes forward/midfielder Dominique Davis, defender Helen Dyer, defender Maria Gentile, defender/midfielder Sydney Gilmore, midfielder Gabrielle Johnson, defender/midfielder Olivia Shuck, forward/midfielder Elizabeth Weimer, and forward Sabrina Kunimoto.

“They are a strong collection of players from some of the top clubs on the East Coast,” said Barroqueiro. “With our usual strong, local representation we know we are getting players with the right level of experience to compete immediately in the CAA. With a few incomers joining us from outside the region, we will add a different style of play to our group that will help complement what we already have here. It’s certainly a great step in the right direction toward becoming a top team in the CAA.”

The list of recruits hails from five different states, including two from Virginia and one each from Georgia, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. The group includes six student-athletes who have played midfield during their careers, three who played forward, and four who played defense.
