Women's Soccer Program
Unity-Intensity-Dedication-Hard Work: These ideas have come to form the ethos of the St. Lawrence women's soccer program. The 2008 season marked a new era of leadership under head coach Franco Bari, and the Saints wasted little time in renewing a standard of excellence on and off the field. Competition within a spirit of cohesion- and in the context of a balanced scholar-athlete experience defines the mission of the women's soccer program at St. Lawrence.
In and out of conference, the Saints pursue an aggressive schedule each year, squaring off against many of the best teams in the nation. This schedule included a number of nationally ranked non-conference opponents alongside participation in one of the strongest soccer conferences in the country.
In recent history, the Saints have been recognized both on and off the field of play. The women's soccer players have consistently maintained a team grade point average of approximately 3.3, while numerous individuals have been named to the National All-America, All-Region, and All-Conference teams. More important than the individual honors, however, is the Saint's emerging team identity: the ongoing pursuit of excellence as scholars, as campus and community leaders, and as proud representatives of the Scarlet and Brown.
St. Lawrence competes in the Liberty League conference, along with Clarkson, RIT, Bard, Rensselaer, Skidmore, Union, Vassar and William Smith. The Liberty League has been recognized as one of the strongest women's soccer conferences in the nation and has been well represented in NCAA play over the past several seasons. With three teams traditionally advancing to the NCAA Tournament annually, the conference has established itself as a powerhouse.
The Saints hold true to their mission statement in pursuit of excellence both on and off of the field of play: To create an environment that encompasses unity, dedication, and hard work while working together towards success where individuals become one.
