The Wisconsin mens soccer team completed a successful spring exhibition season. Head coach Jeff Rohrman was pleased with the teams performances against tough in-state, club and NCAA competition including tying defending NCAA champion Maryland after playing four 30-minute periods.
I thought we looked good, said Rohrman. We played some very competitive teams and our play against teams like UW-Milwaukee and Maryland was both encouraging and exciting as we look to the fall.
Wisconsin returns all but one member of last seasons team, including eight seniors, to face a competitive non-conference and Big Ten calendar in the fall of 2006.
We have a substantial core returning which will bode well for us and provide good internal competition as we take on a very tough fall schedule, said Rohrman.
The UWs fall schedule will be challenging with seven of last years NCAA qualifiers on the slate.
Its a schedule that is eye-opening, yet with that challenge we hope to be reaping some rewards from that with the tremendous group of seniors leading us into the fall, said Rohrman.
The team will break for the summer, but the coaches will host three summer camps in June and July. The Boys Day Camp will be held June 19-23 followed by the Boys Academy and Goalkeeper Academy June 25-29 and the Boys Elite Academy and Elite Goalkeeper Academy July 23-27.
