KCC’s women’s soccer team begins season Aug. 24

The Kellogg Community College women’s soccer team begins its 2013 season Saturday with the team’s first home game.

The game, against Grace Bible College, will begin at 1 p.m. on the soccer field on KCC’s North Avenue campus, 450 North Ave., Battle Creek. Admission is free.

The women’s soccer program starts its third year with a roster including four returning sophomores. Returning for the Bruins this season are defender Abbie Guebara (Decatur/Paw Paw High School), midfielder/goalkeeper Alex Guebara (Decatur/Paw Paw High School), midfielder Shelby Hays (Allegan/Allegan High School) and forward Taylor Underhill (Paw Paw/Paw Paw High School).

The Bruins this year hope to continue an upward trend in improvement since the program started at KCC in 2011, when the team finished the season 0-16 with zero goals scored. The Bruins improved to 6-9-1 in 2012 and saw sophomore captain Aubree Cable commit to play soccer at Carson-Newman University, an NCAA Division II school in Jefferson City, Tenn.
