Wesley College's Women’s Soccer Names 2014 Team Captains
DOVER, Del. – Wesley College's women's soccer head coach Ed Muntz announced that seniors Chelsi Biener and Stevi Carpenter, as well as juniors Kerri Pagels and Morgan Warrington have been named team captains for the upcoming 2014 season. This is the first time that any of the four student-athletes have been named a team captain.
"We are excited to announce Chelsi, Stevi, Kerri and Morgan as our 2014 team captains," said Coach Muntz. "All four of these players have displayed great passion and leadership to Wesley College and the Women's Soccer team. They are quality student-athletes that represent the strong traditions of our program. With a great deal of experience and commitment, I look forward to watching them lead our team next season."
The team's leading scorer the last two seasons, Biener has started in all but one game since stepping on campus and was an All-Capital Athletic Conference selection in 2012. A native of Newfield, N.J., Biener recorded team-highs in goals (7), assists (4) and points (18) last season. Biener's 21 goals are sixth all-time at Wesley while her 51 career points are seventh in school-history.
"I'm excited to be one of the team captains," said Biener. "I'm ready to lead our soccer program and to have a great season."
Carpenter has started the last two seasons at right back, helping the Wolverines allow just under two goals per contest during those seasons. A native of Interboro, Pa., Carpenter has also tallied a goal and two assists in 50 career games at Wesley.
"I am looking forward to working hard together as a team to have a successful season and becoming the best players that we can be," added Carpenter.
One of the more versatile players on the Wolverines roster, Pagels has started in all 34 games that she appeared in at Wesley. Despite seeing most of her time in the backfield, Pagels, a Brick, N.J., native, has tallied six goals and two assists for 14 points and was credited with the game-winning goal at Cairn in the 2013 season.
"I feel honored to be one of the captains for next season," commented Pagels. I can't wait to help push this soccer program in the right direction and to have a winning season."
Starting in all but one game in her career at midfield, Warrington had her best collegiate season last year, recording four goals and two assists for ten points, upping her career totals to five goals and seven assists for 17 points. A local product out of Seaford, Del., Warrington also has been credited with a pair of game-winning goals.
"I'm really excited to be one of the captains for the upcoming season," said Warrington. "I am looking forward to being one of the leaders on the team and help us excel towards a successful year."
The Wolverines open the 2014 season on the road against Washington College on August 29 at 7 pm before hosting St. Elizabeth the following night at 7 o'clock
