Huskies Play 7-Game Spring Soccer Season
March 13, 2004
SEATTLE - The Washington women's soccer team plays seven exhibition games this spring, including some home action during a pair of weekends in April. The Huskies use the spring season to prepare for the 2004 regular season that begins August 27 at home with the Husky/Nike Invitational.
The spring session started Mar. 6 against the University of British Columbia in Bellingham, Wash.
The remaining six spring outings all take place during April, beginning Saturday, April 3 when the Huskies host the two-day UW 7-Aside Tournament. That tournament continues Sunday, April 4.
Washington entertains the Parrots, an under-18 club team that won the state championship, Saturday, April 17 at 11 a.m. The Parrots are preparing for the regional championships in June.
The Huskies close out their spring session in hectic fashion, playing four games in two days. UW plays back-to-back games in Santa Barbara, Calif. on April 23. The Huskies meet host UC Santa Barbara at 4 p.m. in a 60-minute game followed at 5:20 p.m. by an encounter with Cal State Baskerfield.
The next day, April 24, UW travels to San Luis Obispo, Calif. to play Cal Poly-SLO at 10 a.m. followed by a 2 p.m. meeting with Cal State Fullerton.
Washington returns five starters from last season's team that registered an 11-6-3 record and qualified for the NCAA Tournament. UW lost 2-1 to Nebraska in the first round.
The team's top two scorers return, including co-Pac-10 Player of the Year Tina Frimpong. The junior forward led all Pac-10 players with 13 goals in 2003. Sophomore Kim Taylor, an honorable mention All-Pac-10 selection, was UW's second-leading scorer with five goals and eight assists.
Coach Lesle Gallimore enters her 11th year this fall, having guided the Huskies to seven NCAA Touranment berths in her first 10 seasons.
