Seamus O’Connor will have six new freshmen to work with next season.
Goalkeeper Jordan Nash, Midfielders Juliet Esposito and Sarah McGlinn, and defenders Katie McCoy, Olivia Novak and Kelcie Dolan have all decided to join the team that set a program record with 11 wins last season.
O’Connor didn’t go far to find his recruits. Mccoy and Novak are both from Pennsylvania, while the other four players are from New Jersey.
With senior Alyssa Kirk as the only Owl gone from last season’s roster, it looks like the incoming freshmen will help bolster the team’s depth, which was lacking last season.
Topdrawersoccer.com gave three-star rankings to McCoy, McGlinn and Nash, the only three players ranked by the site.
McGlinn played at Cherry Hill West High School, while McCoy played at Neshaminy High School, Kirk’s alma mater and Nash played at St. Rose High School.
Esposito played her high school ball at Camden Catholic high school. She was a first-team all-conference and all-state honorable mention selection in this past season.
Novak is out of Manheim Central High School. She received first team Lancaster-Lebanon League honors after her senior season.
Dolan, from Absegami High School, was also a first team all-conference selection for her team this past season in the Cape Atlantic League.
