PROVO -- The BYU women’s soccer team begins its 2008 campaign for a fourth consecutive NCAA tournament berth when it travels to Cal Poly to face the Mustangs on Friday, Aug. 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the season opener for both teams.

Fresh off a competitive Blue and White game, the team looks to open the season strong. Hermann trophy candidate Katie Larkin leads the talented team and All-Region defender Jessica Carter anchors a defense that held opponents scoreless for the first nine games of the 2007 season.

Cal Poly defender Carrie Andrews had 2 goals and 2 assists during the 2007 season, and was named All-Big West First Team.

The Cougars will continue their first road trip of the season on Monday, Aug. 25 when they face the Tigers of LSU at 7:00 p.m.

The Tigers are led by junior midfielder Malorie Rutledge, who was recently named to the watch list for the Hermann Trophy. LSU finished 2007 12-5-7, and was the SEC West Division champion.
