Munger on this year’s team: “The team is strong and has good leadership with several seniors..... Our seniors have a belief in the team and a passion to play. We will be filling some spots on the field with sophomores, but the they are strong and spirited.”

Munger on the BWAC (Note: Yale enters first official season in BWAC soccer for a full 8-team conference): “The BWAC is always strong and games can usually go either way. Imlay City will be very strong and Armada should contend for the top. Both were younger last year but performed well. (Coach) Tony Kunce at Richmond will make it difficult for all of us. His team is always prepared.”
