    This preseason, IUHOOSIERS.com will bring you in-depth coverage of the women's soccer team. In addition to daily player blogs, found in the Features section, it will have a three-part preview of the upcoming season. The preview for Friday, Aug. 17, will look at the overview and schedule for the 2007 Hoosiers.

    With much of its core group returning, the Indiana women's soccer team has high hopes for another top-four Big Ten finish and a trip to the NCAA Tournament in 2007. Indiana returns six starters, including a pair of second team All-Big Ten selections from last season, as well as a strong senior class that includes a pair of returning starters. Seniors Lindsay McCarthy and Katy Stewart were selected as captains for the 2007 campaign, as they will lead a large group of 14 newcomers for the upcoming season.

    The Hoosiers will host 10 games in their 19-game 2007 schedule. In addition to four Big Ten home games, the Hoosiers will play host to the third annual Hoosier Classic, which will bring national powers Maryland, Southern California and Loyola Marymount to Bloomington this season.

    Indiana will begin its season with a trip to Florida to take on NCAA participants Jacksonville and No. 13 Florida. The Gators advanced to the round of 16 a season ago, while JU was topped in the first round by national semifinalist Florida State in the 2006 tournament.

    Following their trip to Florida, the Hoosiers return home for the Hoosier Classic on Sept. 7 and 9. This season, the four-game event will feature three of the elite programs in the country. The Hoosiers will square off with NCAA participants No. 25 USC and LMU, while ACC squad Maryland will also come to town for the Classic.

    Indiana then plays five of its next six games at home, with a mid-week trip to Butler being the lone exception. Indiana closes out its homestand with its first Big Ten contests of the season, as Northwestern and Wisconsin visit Bloomington for games on Friday, Sept. 28, and Sunday, Sept. 30, respectively.
