BRISTOL, Tenn. – King University Women's Soccer Head Coach Leah Presley announced her 2018 recruiting class this week. The Tornado will have 18 new players when they take the pitch later in August for the 2018-19 season.

"I am very excited about the 2018 season," Presley said. "We have a large group of young ladies coming in who are eager to jump in and contribute to building our team's success. In addition to the very talented freshmen class, we have a solid core group of returners who are prepared and excited to welcome the new players and lead the team."

"We have our three senior captains, McKenzie Clarke, Emaleigh Adcox, and Lizzie Boone who bring a lot of experience, talent, and leadership to the table," continued Presley. "Overall, our team will be young but talented and willing to put in the work to succeed. We have some goals to meet this year and are looking forward to improving and growing together as a team. The talent level is high and so is the ambition to win and succeed."
