Ginn Inks First Soccer Class

April 4, 2001 · MT Media Relations
Head soccer coach Scott Ginn has announced his signing class for the upcoming 2001 season.

Ginn has inked 13 incoming players, making this class one of the largest in school history.

Ginn said that his main focus in recruiting his first class at Middle Tennessee was to sign players with speed and to improve the overall depth of his squad.

"This is certainly a large class," said Ginn. "Right now we have a good core of returning players, but we're adding speed and depth. We will get a big boost from this class."

The Lady Raiders return 14 players from last season's team and should have close to 30 players on the roster when fall camp opens in August.

Ginn also noted that he had signed players to enhance his returners, not replace them.

"They're not coming here to replace anyone, just to help make us better. We just didn't have the speed to compete in the Sun Belt last season. We will be a better team because we can now have full team scrimmages in practices and do some other things that will make us better, too."

The 2000 season was Ginn's first at Middle Tennessee and the first for the team in the Sun Belt Conference. The Lady Raiders went 8-11 overall and 3-4 in the league. The win total was the second-most in school history.
