WSU Women's Soccer is back in action tonight as the Cougs host the visiting Red Hawks of Seattle U. The Cougars are 13-1 all-time against the Red Hawks, including last year when the Cougars defeated Seattle U 3-1 in Pullman.
Last year, WSU boasted a 13-6-1 record in a season that included an astonishing win over the #1 ranked UCLA Bruins. The Cougs would make it all the way to the second round of the NCAA Tournament, before falling at the hands of the #2 Georgetown Hoyas in Washington D.C.
This year WSU appears to have another promising year lined up, especially considering senior forward Morgan Weaver was named one of the top 100 soccer players to watch in women's soccer this year. She came in ranked at number 41 on that list. She was also previously named on a watch list for the award that goes to the best player in the country. Weaver is already off to a hot start scoring two goals and two assists after a 5-0 victory in an exhibition against SDSU. The website also has the WSU program sitting at No.15 in their preseason top 25. Last season, the 5'10 striker from University Place First Team All Pac 12 and First Team All West Region last year as a junior. She accumulated 13 goals overall, one of those goals was the game-winning goal against #1 UCLA, as well as scoring a hat-trick against the hated Huskies.
The Cougars officially kick off their season tonight at 7 against Seattle U in Pullman. So if you don't plan on attending Hot August Nights, maybe you should give the #15 ranked Cougs' a look? Good luck tonight ladies!
