NM State Soccer Inks 14 Newcomers

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - It’s a new era for New Mexico State soccer as head coach Freddy Delgado is excited to announce the addition of 14 new Aggies.

“The one thing all these student-athletes have in common is a winning attitude,” said Delgado, who enters his second season at the helm. “They are successful in the classroom, in their communities and on the field. We believe this is the attitude that will take us to the top of the Western Athletic Conference.”

Delgado put a heavy emphasis on recruiting native New Mexicans, while reaching out to El Paso and soccer hotbeds in Arizona and Southern California.

“Our goal is to keep the best soccer players in New Mexico at home,” added Delgado, who signed 10 players from the Land of Enchantment, as well as a player from El Paso.

Seven of the signees played club soccer for Rio Zia.

“Rio Zia is one of the best youth women’s soccer teams to come out of the state of New Mexico, all of our New Mexican signees are very familiar with one another either by competing against or playing alongside one another,” Delgado said. “Combined with an excellent core group of returners, I believe we are ready to build a winning tradition.”

Here is list of today’s women’s soccer signees along with a short bio and some words from Delgado:  Continue Reading This Post >>
