WINCHESTER, Va. - Shenandoah University Head Men's Soccer Coach Matt Smith announced his 2017 roster Wednesday morning.
Smith, who took over in January as the fifth head coach in program history, adds nine newcomers into his program for the 2017 season along with 13 returnees.
Six of the nine newcomers are Virginia natives with two from Maryland and one from Pennsylvania. This group includes one goalkeeper, one forward, three midfielders and four backs.
"This is the group that is going to begin the process of our program competing for ODAC championships," Smith said.
"We had a great non-traditional season with our returnees - they have bought into what we are trying to do and these newcomers are on the same page.
"It's going to be a great season."
The squad reports to campus on August 16 with the season opener on September 2 at home versus Southern Virginia.
