Wolfpack to Host Appalachian State in Wednesday Exhibition
Aug. 12, 2014
RALEIGH – The NC State women’s soccer team takes to the field Wednesday evening in its only exhibition contest of the 2014 season. The Wolfpack will host the Appalachian State Mountaineers at Dail Soccer Field with first kick scheduled for 7 p.m.
A SEASON OF IMPROVEMENT
State picked up two more wins in 2013 than it did in 2012, earned its first win over a ranked foe since 2009, and improved its end of season RPI mark by 85 places (45 percent) from 188 to 103. The Wolfpack’s season ended with a 2-1 victory over No. 23 Wake Forest. Shortly after this victory, freshman Jackie Stengel earned postseason Atlantic Coast Conference honors (third team and freshman team).
FUTURE IS BRIGHT
STENGEL’S SOPHOMORE SEASON
As a freshman in 2013, Jackie Stengel came onto the ACC scene with a bang, leading the Wolfpack in goals (9), points (19), shots (45), and shots on goal (23). Her goal total ranked 10th in the ACC at the end of the regular season.
Stengel scored at least one goal in eight separate games and scored two game-winning goals, one of which came at ACC foe Pittsburgh in the 90th minute.
On August 7, Stengel was named to the second team of the College Sports Madness 2014 ACC Preseason All-Conference Team.
