Following an inaugural season that saw them grasping for anyone and everyone they could to fill spots on the field and still coming up short, Lincoln Trail College's women's soccer team is hoping year two will be the first of many steps forward.
After their first season this past fall was cut short due to a lack of players, head coach Shawn Hall has already been able to secure a deeper roster heading into his second season at the helm and he continues to look to supplement it.
"We have six new girls coming in and all of them are better than the back end of what we had last year," Hall said. "My goal was to bring more solid, all-around players in that can help the program and I believe we are doing that."
Gov. JB Pritzker on Friday issued a "Stay at Home" order throughout Illinois, directing all residents to stay home except to conduct essential business, and all non-essential businesses to stop operations.
