UNH Women's Soccer - 2019 Freshman Class The Wildcats ink five new additions to the 2019 roster.

University of New Hampshire women’s soccer coach Steve Welham has signed five new incoming freshmen to the 2019 roster, for the upcoming season just one short month away.

The five incoming freshmen look to replenish the roster that lost five players due to graduation, but returns 10 seniors which include last season’s leading goal scorers Ally Reynolds (Weymouth, Mass.) and Kaylan Williams (Marion, Ind.)

“Overall, we are very happy with this incoming class. We know it will add strength to our team in a multitude of positions and continue the strong culture and foundations we have been putting in place. We are looking forward to the upcoming season and the contributions of our team and especially this freshman group." -- Head Coach Steve Welham
