Under the guidance of head coach Peter Kim, who was named both the 2018 United Soccer Coaches Regional Coaching Staff of the Year and the NESCAC Coach of the Year, the Panthers must fill some key pieces from a season ago, including two All-Americans in the midfield. The 16th-year head coach returns his top-eight point producers from a team that outscored opponents last fall by a 52-11 count and welcomes back depth at each level of the field.
Up front, senior captains Ellie Greenberg and Virginia Charman and junior Eliza Van Voorhis lead the returners. Van Voorhis, a Second-Team All-Region and All-NESCAC recipient, paced the Panthers in both goals (8) and points (20) a season ago, ranking seventh and eighth respectively in those categories among NESCAC peers. Greenberg finished with 14 points on six goals and a pair of assists. She recorded game-winning scores during each of the Panthers’ NCAA Tournament Sectional victories, while assisting on the lone goal in the NCAA Semifinal win over Washington-St. Louis. A two-year starter, Charman played in every match last season, tallying the game-winning goal at Roger Williams.
