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 Monday, Aug. 20, will look at the goalkeepers and defenders for the 2007 Hoosiers.
Stewart and sophomore Taylor Fallon are the favorites to garner the other two starting spots in the back four. Stewart played 19 games on the defensive side of the midfield, making a pair of starts, and will make the move to defense for 2007. Fallon played in 19 games as well, starting 10, and was named to the Top Drawer Soccer All-Freshman Team following the season.
In addition to the four returners, a trio of newcomers will challenge for playing time at the back. Jessica Krichbaum, Taylor Miller and Susan Swepston will all be in the mix for the Hoosiers in 2007. Krichbaum was a four-year starter for Indiana's Penn High School, earning all-conference selections in each season. Miller was named East Suburban Conference Player of the Year after helping Benet Academy in Illinois to a 2007 regional championship. Swepston joins the Hoosiers after playing left back for four years at Dublin Coffman High School, helping the team to an Ohio state championship as a freshman and runner-up finishes as a sophomore and senior.
