Record signing class for LU women’s soccer

Longwood Head Women’s Soccer Coach Todd Dyer and Associate Head Coach Rich Stoneman announced the signing of 13 high school seniors on National Signing Day, adding a record freshman class to a program coming off a trip to the Big South Championship semifinals in 2016.

“In our 23 years as a program, this is the largest recruiting class we’ve ever had,” said Dyer, a Longwood soccer alumnus who has led the Longwood women to a 29-15-6 record in five years of Big South competition. “If the quality matches the quantity of this group, our future looks very bright.”
