LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – On the eve of its season opener, the Georgia Gwinnett College women’s soccer team received votes in the national preseason NAIA coaches Top 25 poll.

The Grizzlies, coming off a 10-7-2 2016 record, will face four opponents this fall that are ranked inside the preseason Top 25, with an additional match against an opponent that’s receiving votes.

Ready to face these challenges is a veteran squad with five seniors and 15 juniors. Five returning players scored three or more goals last season, led by junior Ana Gonzalez with seven goals. Seniors Dominique Fletcher and Amy Morland each tallied five goals in 2016.

The 2017 season commences Thursday, Aug. 17, when GGC hosts SCAD Savannah at the Grizzly Soccer Complex, at 7 p.m.

The Mitsubishi Electric Classic, a PGA TOUR Champions event, will return to the Metro Atlanta area in spring 2018. Don’t miss seeing the legends of golf like Miguel Angel Jimenez, Tom Watson, and Bernhard Langer!
